Travel Advisory

Major Impacts to Flights Across North America due to Severe Winter Weather

Airlines across North America are experiencing mass delays and cancellations due to severe winter weather. This is not limited to a few airlines or airports. Thousands and thousands of flights across North America have been cancelled with many, many more delayed.

The holiday season is already the busiest time of the year and flights are full. This means that airlines have extremely limited options for re-accommodating passengers.

*Please note, Sunwing has suspended all departing flights from Saskatchewan until February 4, 2023. Travellers currently booked with Sunwing in January 2023 will automatically receive a full refund within 30 days from Sunwing. No action is required by passengers to get this refund.

Confirm your flight status directly with your airline

It’s very important that you check the status of your flight directly with your airline prior to coming to the airport or deciding not to come to the airport. During mass cancellations and delays, our website data may not be able to keep up. Check the flight status directly on their websites and/or give them a call to confirm the latest on the flight status.
