Yesterday a fierce blizzard struck Canada’s eastern provinces affecting air travel in and out of the Maritimes. Most flights were cancelled or delayed and some airports were even forced to close at the height of the storm.
Airports are open today, but a number of flights are delayed or cancelled. Travellers are encouraged to check their flight status before heading to the airport.
A blizzard warning remains in effect in some parts of Atlantic Canada: Environment Canada has issued warnings for northern Nova Scotia, the east and south coasts of Newfoundland and all of Prince Edward Island as the slow-moving, but powerful storm continues to track east.
