Southwest cancels 8 PHL flights

Posted: April 04, 2011

Southwest Airlines has canceled eight flights to or from Philadelphia International Airport today after the airline grounded part of its fleet for safety inspections.

The inspections of about 80 of the airline's Boeing 737-300 jets were ordered over the weekend after a 5-foot tear opened up in the skin of a plane carrying 118 people, forcing it to make an emergency landing at a military base in Arizona.

Canceled flights to Philadelphia include:

  • 1654 from Manchester;
  • 730 from Boston;
  • 3320 from Boston;
  • 2088 from Providence.

Flights from Philadelphia that have been canceled include:

  • 1762 to Phoenix and Los Angeles;
  • 1241 to West Palm Beach;
  • 448 to Boston;
  • 1210 to Albuquerque.
