Airline Cancels 220 Flights After Running Low on De-Icer

  • Southwest Airlines canceled all 220 of their flights out of Chicago's Midway Airport on Sunday after running low on de-icing fluid for their planes leaving several passengers stranded

The airline proactively cancelled about 220 flights from Chicago Midway on Sunday afternoon "due to the severity of the winter weather", a spokesperson said, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Southwest Airlines Co.is working on restoring a normal schedule at Chicago's Midway Airport on Monday after canceling almost all flights Sunday because it ran out of de-icing fluid during a snow storm.

Passengers were evacuated from the plane using emergency slides, she said.

As of 9 p.m. Sunday, a total of 264 flights on all airlines had been canceled out of Midway and another 235 were canceled out of O'Hare.

A few people sustained minor injuries, though no one was hospitalized, airport officials said on Twitter. As of Monday morning, glycol used for de-icing had been replenished, according to a statement from Southwest.

The plane had 139 passengers and five crew aboard.

The carrier had encountered a similar issue before Christmas, when it was forced to cancel approximately 90 flights as harsh weather conditions prevented its de-icing crews from servicing its planes.

The airport initially said the plane had landed prior to the fire, but later corrected their tweet.

Due to a fire believed to be in the auxiliary power unit, the plane's crew made a decision to evacuate the plane.

The airport said its operations were back to normal.
