DSC_0819Southwest Airlines said it is close to returning to normal operations at Chicago’s Midway Airport on Monday after the airline was forced to shut down operations on Sunday when it ran out of de-icing fluid.

Over 250 of the carrier’s flights were cancelled that day, leaving thousands of passengers stranded.

The carrier said that its flight schedule on Monday would be “close to normal.”

Earlier this winter, the airline experienced problems with de-icing at Chicago Midway, when it had to cancel 90 flights at the airport a few days after Christmas amid freezing conditions.
