Storm Causes Flight Delays and Cancellations in Calgary

A severe thunderstorm caused delays and cancellations of more than 70 flights at Calgary International Airport on Wednesday.  Of those cancelled of delayed, 50 were WestJet flights and at least 20 Air Canada flights were affected.  A red alert was issued after lightening struck near the airport, forcing ground crews to remain inside for safety reasons.  Planes were parked and passengers were inconvenienced with delays and, for those whose flight had been cancelled, the task of booking a new flight.


The red alert was lifted at 5:00 pm, but hundreds of passengers were still left in a crowded airport trying to make alternative travel arrangements and find accommodations.  Hotel rooms were hard to find because the Global Petroleum Show was in town.  Jennifer Sanford, a spokesperson for WestJet, said that by 8:00 pm they had made accommodation arrangements for he majority of their passengers.
