DENVER (KKTV) - Denver International Airport’s weekend travel woes are continuing into the new work week with more flights canceled Monday morning.

Flight tracking site FlightAware shows 47 flights canceled as of 10:45 a.m. Monday and another 134 delayed. Most are from Southwest Airlines, which announced Saturday it had to cancel and delay flights nationwide die to bad weather in parts of the country and air traffic control issues.

No other airline has reported similar issues.

DIA was already dealing with major transportation problems over the weekend, with parking lots filling up by late Saturday morning and staffing challenges preventing it from opening two of its shuttle lots. The airport also reported excessively long security lines Sunday evening.

At its peak Sunday, cancellations and delays attributed to Southwest were soaring into the hundreds, plural.
