I received an email yesterday from United Airlines stating that they’re offering a travel waiver for SFO runway construction. Their waiver applies to tickets issued April 24 – May 21. I dug a little deeper and see that SFO issued a press release back in January warning the traveling public that they are closing Runway 28R for a period of four months to complete upgrades originally scheduled to occur in 2022.

According to the press release: “Work will involve the four-month closure of Runway 28R, as well as a three-week closure of Runway 28L. All work is scheduled to be completed by Labor Day 2021.

“During this period, airlines are currently planning to operate less than 50% of the flights originally scheduled prior to the pandemic. During the runway closure, airport officials expect moderate delays, with most delays occurring on flights scheduled between 11:00 am to noon and 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Both arriving and departing flights are expected to be affected during these periods. SFO recommends that travelers opt for early morning flights before 4:00 pm PDT during this period, as most delays are expected to begin after 4:00 pm PDT each day during the closure.”

I’m not sure how I missed this but I suppose I wasn’t expecting a lot of people to be traveling like they are now. So, if you are flying in, out or through SFO, you might want to avoid these dates or at least these times. Find more details here.
