Cancellations In YHZ?

Sat Jul 02, 2005 6:31 am

I just saw ont he YHZ website www.hiaa.com that all AC flights are either running ver delayed or have been outright cancelled. All other flights seem to be operating more or less on sked. Anyone have any knowledge on the reason for AC being all messed up?

Never mind I found the reason........

Travel Advisory for Flights to/from Halifax
July 1, 2005 - Runway reconstruction at Halifax International Airport may cause delays and cancellations to flights to and from Halifax, particularly during inclement weather. For further details, please see the Halifax International Airport Authority's information link:

Halifax Airport Authority

I'm sure this didn't help matters much...

METAR CYHZ 012300Z 16011KT 1/8SM FG VV001 15/15 A2993 RMK FG8 SLP135=

METAR CYHZ 020000Z 15008KT 1/8SM FG VV001 15/15 A2992 RMK FG8 SLP132=

METAR CYHZ 020100Z 16008KT 1/8SM FG VV001 16/16 A2991 RMK FG8

As well Westjet also cancelled its' two afternoon flights to Halifax
WS 798 YYZ-YHZ-YYT went directly to YYT - no YHZ and WS 682 YYZ-YHZ was cancelled outright.

I'm sure it was more weather related, than runway construction - although that would also impact operations!!

The construction is for the ILS, so the ILS is out and the planes and pissed off people come to BGR, and I get to deal with them. My day has been wonderful how bout yours?
