Airports deal with critical staffing shortages amid busiest time in years

Albany International Airport is experiencing travel problems like other airports nationwide, canceling six flights and delaying 22 more on just Sunday.

Albany International Airport spokesman Doug Myers tells NewsChannel 13 Monday was the busiest day at the airport in more than two years.

TSA is expected to have more than 5,000 passengers on planes Monday. This is a big change, because at one point during the pandemic, we’re told they were only seeing 100 passengers a day.

Unfortunately, this uptick in travelers is making it harder for people flying in and out.
