YXS Operations Affected by Snowfall
Prince George, B.C. – Operations at the Prince George airport have been affected by the day’s winter weather.
Spokesperson Lindsay Cotter says the wet, heavy snow caused a power outage at YXS. Back- up power has kicked in throughout the terminal, however the back-up generator for the airfield lighting has failed. The airport’s operations team is working on repairing the back-up generator but as there is no lighting on the airfield, it is unsafe to land/take off from the Prince George Airport.
Airport operations, electricians and BC Hydro are on site trying to restore power.
BC Hydro expects to have power restored by 2:00 am.
Passengers scheduled to take off or land tonight are being asked to contact their airline to make arrangements.
