Tapering Claudette storm causes dozens of flight cancellations in St. John’s Newfoundland

ST. JOHN’S, N.L. – Dozens of flights were cancelled due to weather and construction at the St. John’s International Airport in Newfoundland and Labrador.

According to the airport’s website, about 60 arriving and departing flights were cancelled over the last 24 hours due to fog and runway renovations.

Some flights were diverted to Gander in central Newfoundland and buses were taking those passengers to St. John’s.

The cancellations started Wednesday as the remnants of post-tropical storm Claudette approached the region.

Last weekend, 42 flights that were supposed to arrive between Friday night and Sunday morning were cancelled.

No one from the airport authority was available for comment.
