Southwestern Airlines canceled more than 2.5 thousand flights in three days

The airline associates problems with difficulties returning to regular operation after a significant decline in traffic due to the pandemic.

The airline Southwestern Airlines, which is the largest American low-cost carrier, canceled more than 2.5 thousand flights from the evening of October 8; interruptions continue on Monday. CNN reported this on Monday.

More than 300 flights have already been canceled on Monday, and more than 200 are delayed. The airline associates problems with difficulties returning to regular operation after a significant decline in traffic due to the pandemic. Because of this, there are disruptions in the schedule; there is also a shortage of dispatchers.

On October 11, Columbus Day is celebrated in the United States – a federal holiday. Traditionally, many Americans travel around the country for a long weekend. Air carriers are trying to increase the number of flights by these dates. In recent weeks and months, against the background of mass vaccination in the United States (in the whole country, this figure is 56%), Americans who previously preferred to stay at home are increasingly traveling.
