A passenger looks through a window at Dubai International Airport on January 01, 2022 in Dubai, UAE. Inter-country journeys made during the Omicron variant of the Coronavirus pandemic require differing measures of covid control according to the airline carrier and country of departure and arrival. Borja Sanchez Trillo flew with Emirates Airlines from Madrid, Spain to Bangkok, Thailand at 21:40 CEST on New Year's Eve, 2021. He made a stopover in Dubai for just over two hours where he was required to test his temperature and show travel documents. On arrival in Bangkok (19:15 January 1, 2022) he was taken to his chosen AQ+ Hotel in the capital to isolate while he took a Covid PCR test. This is known as "Test and Go" quarantine and lasts for one day and one night, with the traveller allowed to leave after returning a negative test. If the resulting test is positive the traveller must go to a hospital. Currently, Thailand has temporarily suspended new applications for the one night “Test and Go” pass due to the virulent Omicron situation. (Photo by Borja Sanchez Trillo/Getty Images)

(CNN) — At least 730 flights were canceled across the United States on Sunday evening, according to the flight-tracking website FlightAware.

Delta Air Lines alone canceled at least 224 flights on Sunday. United Airlines canceled 71 flights and American Airlines canceled 66 flights.

CNN has reached out to the three airlines for comment on flight cancellations.

“Delta teams continue to safely manage through compounding factors affecting our operation this weekend, including higher-than-planned unscheduled absences in some of our work groups, weather, and air traffic control constraints,” a Delta Airlines spokesperson said. “Canceling a flight is always our last resort, and we sincerely apologize to our customers for any disruption to their travel plans.”

Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport was most impacted by Sunday’s cancellations.

United Airlines canceled 56 flights on Saturday and 70 flights Sunday.

United Airlines said on Thursday it would cut 12% of its daily domestic flights from its busy Newark hub. The cuts start in July and amount to about 50 daily flights.

According to FlightAware, there were 634 flight cancellations Saturday.
