Southwest Airlines Continues Recovering from Operational Challenges


CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – Airlines across the United States continue to encounter travel disruptions this holiday season. Frigid temperatures and ice in some regions of the nation have created challenges for many airlines as they try to resume normal operations.  Southwest Airlines has the majority of flight cancellations and delays. The airline is providing travel disruption information on its website at Travel Disruption | Southwest Airlines.
