(CNN) – More than 1,000 flights were canceled in the United States on Monday as winter weather moved into the middle of the country, with disruption expected to continue on Tuesday.
So far, the most affected airports are Dallas Love Field, Dallas-Fort Worth International, Austin Bergstrom International and Houston Bush International airports in Texas.
Two other western airports, Las Vegas’ Harry Reid International and Colorado’s Denver International, are also experiencing major delays.
As of 11 p.m. ET Monday, just over 1,100 flights to, from or from the US have been canceled, according to flight tracking site FlightAware, with more than 5,000 delayed. More than 900 flights on Tuesday have already been cancelled.
Southwest Airlines did not immediately respond to a request for comment. As of Monday morning, CEO Bob Jordan was outlining the fixes to prevent a repeat of the airline’s Christmas travel meltdown.
American Airlines and regional carrier SkyWest also saw many delays and cancellations.
Time off for travelers
Dallas Love Field tweeted on Monday that his team “stands ready to treat and clean surfaces to allow safe operations.” DFW was also preparing for bad weather.
Both airports encouraged travelers to check with their airlines for the status of their flights before going to the airport.
