Cancellation of flights did not stop at Christmas
Christmas Day was also chaotic at the Fort Lauderdale and Miami Airports, due to the cancellation of several flights. This was reported by journalists Saira Anwer and Andreas Torres from WPLG.
According to information provided to the journalists, the airport authorities this Saturday around 44 flights were cancelled.
The airline that had the most flight cancellations this Saturday was Delta Airlines, as reported by the FlightAware page database.
Reasons for flight cancellations
The airlines have reported for several days that the change in itinerary of both local and international flights is due to the rebound of the omicron variant in the United States.
This has caused some aeronautical companies to force their staff to redouble hours, which shows severe fatigue.

“Unfortunately we have had to cancel some flights and we are notifying affected customers before they arrive at the airport,” said a member of the Delta Airlines company.
Authorities indicate that the situation could worsen
The authorities of the Airports of Fort Lauderdale, as well as Miami have said that while there are more positive cases of Covid-19, within their payrolls the situation will be much more serious.
For this reason and for the second consecutive day, they have asked the representatives of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the United States national public health agency (CDC), to issue new regulations in order to avoid high infections and comply with your flight plan.
This situation has also affected other air terminals in the United States where people have had to spend hours waiting for their flights.
The companies also hope that soon, the president of the United States, Joe Biden, will dictate how the new omicron variant will be treated.
