At least 20 passenger and cargo flights diverted while en route to Anchorage Wednesday due to weather.
Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport remains open, but spokeswoman Trudy Wassel says most of the diverted flights were sent to Fairbanks.
Wassel told Channel 2 Wednesday that she suggests customers call airline companies directly for information on specific flights.
“We’re paying very close attention to the weather forecast,” Wassel said.
Wassel didn’t have information on when flights may return to Anchorage as scheduled. She said airlines will decide for themselves whether to land in Anchorage.
A high wind warning remains in effect until 6 p.m. Wednesday for the Anchorage area. Low-lying areas of the Anchorage Bowl and Eagle River are expected to experience 55 miles per hour gusts this afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.
