High winds in Denver on Tuesday dusk forced 13 flights to be diverted to Colorado Springs Airport from Denver International Airport.
The flights were diverted to Colorado Springs between 5:55-7:30 p.m. Tuesday dusk and enclosed planes from United Airlines, American Airlines, Frontier, GoJet Airlines, Southwest Airlines and Delta.
When atmosphere trade control issues a belligerent stop, as DIA did Tuesday, a airfield is not receiving flights and airplanes are diverted until a airfield reopens, pronounced John McGinley, assistance executive of operations and upkeep during a Colorado Springs Airport.
McGinley pronounced that ludicrous flights is a common occurrence between open and fall. “We ordinarily get diversions whenever there are thunderstorms in a Denver area,” McGinley said.
Airport operations were normal Wednesday during DIA with breeze speeds between 10-15 mph.
