Southwest Air cancels more than 2,000 flights

The airline considers more cuts to its schedule

According to the flight-tracking website FlightAware, one of the largest US airlines, cancelled more than 2,000 since Saturday. Southwest Air initially cancelled 1,124 flights on Sunday – or 30% of its schedule, to which there were added another 347 on Monday.

The latest move came after Southwest announced it would adjust its fall schedule to avoid cancellations and delays that it encountered during the summer. Currently, the company is considering whether or not it needs to cut more.

Airline’s president Mike Van de Ven stated: “We’ve already made significant reductions from our previously published November and December schedules, and if we think we need to do more, we will.”

At the moment of writing, Southwest stock price was trading 2.31% lower.
