A Kingdom of Saudi Arabia registered Airbus A310-300 (HZ-NSA) from New York/ LaGuardia, NY (KLGA) to London/ Stansted (EGSS), flying overhead Gander, NL (CYQX) at approximately 0400Z reported fuel filter problems and diverted to Gander to investigate. No emergency declared and the aircraft landed at 0420Z without incident.
