Today is not an ideal day to take a flight into or out of Toronto.
As the city gets hit by blustering snow and high winds, Pearson Airport has already cancelled over 400 flights.
- TDSB, colleges, and universities closed in Toronto due to massive winter storm
- Cancellations and delays already expected at Pearson tomorrow
- Environment Canada is advising everyone to postpone non-essential travel tomorrow
As of 9:30 am on Tuesday, the airport showed 218 cancelled arriving flights and 219 cancelled departures.
The airport anticipated that there would be cancellations and delays today, after Environment Canada issued a winter storm watch calling for 20 cm of snow on Monday.
The storm watch has since gotten more intense. This morning’s latest update includes “a combination of 15 to 25 cm snow and ice pellets, possible freezing rain, and strong winds is expected today into tonight.”
Significant snowfall, ice pellets and high winds in southern Ontario today will affect airport operations, leading to cancellations and delays. If you are travelling, please confirm your flight status with your airline: https://t.co/ZxEmdBHBEF. pic.twitter.com/ieAQ6U7CGB
