Washington D.C: Alaska Airlines, the fifth largest airline in the US, Thursday announced that it will reduce flights scheduled for the remainder of Jan. by 10 percent.
The sudden move by the SeaTac, Washington based airlines is due to a major setback in its ability to operate after a huge number of its employees got affected by covid19.
"Right now, we need to build more reliability back into our operation as we deal with the impacts of omicron and during a time when guests generally fly less,” the Alaska Air Group Inc. unit said in a statement.
The cancellations are meant to offer the American airline time to reboot and simultaneously offer its guests options to adjust their plans.
The Alaska Air Group unit Thursday did away with 120 flights, according to FlightAware.com.
