Colorado Springs Airport is working to make amends for flights after almost half have been canceled on Sunday
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado (KRDO) – Snow teams worked non-stop Monday to clear excess snow and ice from the runways at Colorado Springs Airport.
Almost half of the flights from Colorado Springs Airport were canceled on Sunday due to the weather.
Airport officials say strong gusts of wind and wet snow were the greatest challenges for the crews.
According to flight tracking website Flight Aware, at least 25% of flights were canceled on Monday.
Almost all of these travelers had a connection with Denver International Airport, which was still working to catch up after all six runways closed on Sunday.
Airlines, including Frontier and Southwest, offer travelers the option to rebook their flights for free.
