Tampa airport sees continued flight cancellations, delays Monday

Airlines have canceled and delayed hundreds of flights since Friday, a situation that was 'worsened' by weekend weather conditions.

TAMPA, Fla. — Travelers flying in and out of Tampa International Airport should brace for continued flight cancellations and delays Monday.

At least 1,792 flights were canceled and 2,245 were delayed nationwide, according to FlightAware, a flight-tracking platform.

On Sunday, the airport replied to a passenger in a tweet explaining that weather beyond the Tampa Bay area affected airline schedules before the weekend. The airport added that Saturday's rainy weather conditions "worsened the situation." 

For most of Saturday afternoon, all inbound and outbound flights were held at the airport, according to FlightAware. Departures from Tampa International were also seeing a 31 to 45 minute (and increasing) delay due to "an air traffic management program."

The problem is ongoing, TPA said in a tweet Saturday. The airport advises travelers to check with their airlines for the most up-to-date flight information.

Airlines canceled 195 flights and delayed another 201 by 11 p.m. Saturday, according to FlightAware. Southwest Airlines had the most disruptions, with 94 canceled flights and 56 delayed flights. 

The airport also saw cancellations and delays Friday due to weather-related impacts.
