SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) — Strong winds are reportedly causing hundreds of flights at the Denver International Airport to be diverted to other airports, including the Salt Lake City International Airport.
“Denver is experiencing weather that is resulting in some aircraft being diverted to Salt Lake City,” said Nancy Volmer, the director of communication and marketing. “A Lufthansa A-350 and a Lufthansa A-340 were two of the aircraft that landed at SLC to be fueled. When weather allows, they will head back to Denver.”
A total of 14 flights have been diverted to Salt Lake City, according to Volmer. Three of those flights were international while the rest were domestic.
Of the 14 flights, two were Lufthansa, six were Southwest Airlines and another six were United.
FOX13 in Denver reported that many of the diverted flights went to Colorado Springs Airport, with 24 domestic flights and one international flight going there as of 3:35 p.m.
ABC4 is working to find out how long the passengers and crew members will experience these delays before they will be back on their way.
