A 20-day runway construction project at San Francisco International Airport (SFO) which began on Sept. 7 has been causing significant disruption so far. While the project is focused on one runway, the work is actually happening where that runway intersects with two other runways.
Hundreds of flights have been delayed, cancelled or rerouted. While all flights after 9a (when construction work begins for the day) could be affected, officials say short haul trips up and down the west coast are seeing the biggest impact.
More airlines have added change waivers. The list now includes Air Canada, American, ANA, Delta/KLM, Southwest and United for travel through Sept. 27. Other airlines may also offer flexible rebooking options. Check with your airline or your Adelman travel consultant for specific information.
Travelers are advised to monitor airline flight status with regards to your specific itinerary and be prepared for unexpected rerouting to San Jose or Oakland airports.
In addition travelers should note that the airport’s AirTrain will be periodically closed at night for construction. Passengers should allow extra time to get around the airport
