50 Flight Cancellations at SFO On Busiest Day Of Holiday Travel Season

25 arrivals and 25 departures were cancelled Friday morning.

On what is anticipated to be one of the busiest travel days of the year-end holiday season, some Bay Area airports are facing delays and cancellations with inclement weather arriving this morning.

At San Francisco International Airport, airport duty manager Lily Wang said 50 flights -- 25 arrivals and 25 departures -- were canceled this morning.

Other flights are seeing delays of up to an hour and a half, Wang said.

She said there are many delays into Midwest and East Coast airports, with longer delays for flights arriving at Newark International Airport. 

An estimated 130,000 passengers are expected to pass through SFO today, according to airport officials.

Oakland International Airport is tracking on-time flights in and out of the airport this morning with no cancellations, according to airport operations staff. 

The airport was expected to see increased activity today before the Christmas holiday, according to officials. 

According to the National Weather Service, rain is moving south from the North Bay this morning and will continue to fall through Sunday, making for a soggy weekend throughout the Bay Area.
