Flight delays were reported in Nova Scotia's Halifax Stanfield International Airport (YHZ) and Prince Edward Island's Charlottetown Airport (YYG) on Monday, March 4, due to winter weather. A plane slid off the runway at YHZ around 18:30 (local time), causing flight cancelations and delays. A second runway was later opened and planes began landing around 21:00. Residual flight disruptions are expected in the coming hours. On Prince Edward Island, heavy snow and strong winds limited visibility and resulted in flight cancelations. Wind gusts of up to 70 km/h (45 mph) are expected to drop to 40 km/h (25 mph) on Tuesday, March 5. Further delays and cancelations are possible into Tuesday.
Individuals traveling to Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island are advised to monitor local weather reports, anticipate transportation disruptions, including flight delays and cancelations, and confirm their flight status.
