Wind and blowing snow are the storm’s real issue at Timmins Airport

Travelling in to or out of the Timmins Airport this last weekend of March break will be, shall we say? —  complicated.

Airport manager Dave Dayment notes that we’re getting the storm that Environment Canada predicted. At the airport, the real issue is the wind and blowing snow.

“We’ve got a runway that’s usable but there’s certain limits that aircraft need to abide by, and one of them’s visibility and if you get anything below a half-mile, they can’t do an approach and land, or take off, for that matter,” he says.

“As soon as the wind goes down a bit, we’ll stay on top of it, and I think we’ll be back in action tomorrow. It looks like at least midday tomorrow.”

As always, check your flight status with your airline before heading to the airport.
