CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (WKBW) — Several Southwest Airlines flights to and from Buffalo Niagara International Airport have been canceled on Sunday.

Social media reports indicate that Bills fans flying to Kansas City for the Buffalo Bills-Kansas City Chiefs game Sunday night are having some of their flights canceled.

According to FlightAware, over 1,000 Southwest Airlines flights across the country have been canceled Sunday.

On Saturday, Southwest said, "ATC issues and disruptive weather have resulted in a high volume of cancellations throughout the weekend."

On Monday, Southwest Airlines mandated COVID-19 vaccines to pilots, joining American Airlines, JetBlue, and United.

The NFTA said the issues with Southwest Airlines are attributed to weather and staffing.
