Washington D.C: Air travel in the U.S witnessed a cancellation of 2,600 flights Sunday which led to a chaotic situation for American citizens returning from holiday travel.
The flight cancellations occurred due to bad weather conditions and airline staff problems caused by surge in covid cases, media reports said.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has warned against a potential case of increase in air-traffic control staff testing positive for covid19, which could cause more flight disruptions, according to The Wall Street Journal.
2,400 flights had met with the same fate by midday Saturday, according to Flight Aware, a flight tracking website.
On Monday, nearly 1,400 flights were canceled including the U.S inbound and outbound passenger carriers.
