The airport, a United States' hub for flights to Mexico, announced the cancellation on its website amid catastrophic flooding in the Houston area from Tropical Storm Harvey. A very small number of flights were expected to resume at Intercontinental by noon Monday, however, the airport authority is now saying that operations will be halted until further notice.

A startling image purportedly showing one of Houston's two major airports underwater in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, complete with Delta jetliners floating on a flooded tarmac, has been making the rounds on social media. The storm has impacted flight schedules all over the nation.

Southwest Airlines says customers that don't live in Dallas will be staying overnight and will be rebooked on Monday. "(There is) a whole list of boxes that need to be checked before we open airports again", said Bill Begley, the airport system's spokesman.

Airport officials did not have an account of canceled flights from the weekend. Hobby Airport is expected to remain closed to all non-emergency air traffic until August 30 at the earliest, according to the FAA. "We don't want people coming to the airport and getting stuck there", he said.


According to FlightAware, 89% of the flights scheduled to leave Bush Intercontinental were scrubbed Sunday, or 547 flights, and 539 planes scheduled to leave, or 88%, also were canceled.

San Jose will have five new daily routes, with service to Boise, Idaho; Spokane, Wash.; St. Louis; and Houston Hobby beginning April 8.

Travel writer Joe Brancatelli said Monday, "The Hobby situation is worse, obviously, since they have runways under water".

Customers flying to any airport in the region during the next few days should check ahead on the status of their flights.
