Sabo PR released the following statement about the cancelations on behalf of the airport: 

This weekend’s snowfall has necessitated some flight delays and cancellations. In addition, a few airlines have cancelled some flights due to staff shortages.

Our maintenance crews are working as quickly as possible to remove snow from the runways. This is done in conjunction with our airline partners to ensure all travelers can be en route or arrive home as quickly and safely as possible. 

Guests are encouraged to visit their airline’s website for updates on their flight status. For cancelled flights, guests should contact their airline for assistance on rebooking their travel plans.

According to tracking service FlightAware, more than 2,600 U.S. flights and more than 4,400 worldwide flights were grounded Sunday. That followed Saturday’s mass cancellations of more than 2,700 U.S. flights, and more than 4,700 worldwide.

On Saturday, Michigan saw its first major snowfall of the year. On the East Side, the authority that runs Detroit International Airport said crews were working around the clock to remove snow and maintain the airfield.

But nowhere was worse than Chicago, where about a quarter of all flights at O’Hare Airport were canceled Sunday.
