UPDATE: No flight delays out of McCarran, FAA says

Local News

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Arriving flights are no longer delayed due to wind and weather at McCarran Airport, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

For several hours Tuesday, travelers were advised to check flight status before coming to the airport due to weather.

Earlier in the afternoon Southwest Airlines passengers were on alert that some flights have been canceled. McCarran issued a tweet advising Southwest passengers to check their flight status. Check flight status at: McCarran arrivals and McCarran departures.

The National Weather Service issued an airport weather warning that took effect at 1 p.m. and extends through 7 p.m.

The Weather Service said the strongest winds will be from the southwest as a cold front approaches, followed by strong northwest winds late this afternoon behind the cold front.

The Associated Press reported that Southwest canceled 360 flights nationwide on Monday after a weekend when they canceled 1,900 flights. The company and unions sought to dispel rumors that the cancellations were caused by a “sick out” over the company’s vaccination mandate.

Departure delays are reported at Dallas Love Field Airport (47 minutes) and Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport (2 hours and 13 minutes), contributing to the arrival delays in Las Vegas.
