US Airport in chaos as more than 2,700 flights are cancelled

Bad weather in parts of the United States has forced authorities to cancel thousands of flights adding to the impact of a massive spike in Covid-19 infections fueled by the Omicron variant.

The United States had 2,723 canceled flights, more than half of the 4,698 canceled worldwide, around 11:00 pm (0400 GMT Sunday), according to tracking website FlightAware.

In addition, 5,993 domestic flights were delayed on Saturday, out of a total of 11.043 worldwide for the day.

The worst affected US airline was SkyWest, which had to cancel 23 percent of its flight schedule, according to the site.

In the United States, airports in Chicago were particularly hard-hit because of bad weather, with a snowstorm expected in the area on Saturday afternoon and into the night.
