Thousands of flights canceled around the world due to the rise of the omicron variant

Thousands of flights have been canceled around the world for the first weekend of Christmas, when the largest trips usually occur, due to the havoc that the omicron variant is causing in many countries, according to data from FlightAware.

This website that analyzes air traffic has indicated that more than 2,400 flights were canceled on Christmas Eve alone, to which there are about 1,800 for the same December 25 and another 400 for Sunday, that is, about 4,600 on this first weekend of the Christmas holidays.

Only in the United States, this December 24, 454 flights have been canceled. “The national upturn in omicron cases this week has had a direct impact on our crews,” United Airlines explained in a circular collected by CNN.

“We are sorry for the annoyance and we are working hard to be able to relocate as many people as possible and take them to their destinations on this vacation,” the US airline said in a statement.

Delta AirLines has also canceled 130 flights this Friday also due to incidents related to the omicron advance. “We apologize to our clients for the delay in their plans to travel on their Christmas holidays,” he said.

In China, two airlines – China Eastern and Air China – have canceled more than 660 flights, to which are added identical measures from other smaller airlines in the Asian giant.
