Extreme cold grounds flights at Yellowknife airport
______________________________________


 
4 Feb 08 - Air Canada Jazz managed to launch some flights from the Northwest Territories capital over the weekend after an extreme cold snap ground the airline's flights in and out of Yellowknife last week.

On both Sunday and Monday, the morning flight to Vancouver was cancelled, but afternoon flights to Calgary and Edmonton departed on schedule, according to Air Canada's website.

Air Canada Jazz officials have maintained that the company's regional jets, the Bombardier CRJs, are not certified to operate when temperatures reach below -40 C. Temperatures in the city have hovered between -35 C and -45 C since last Sunday, conditions that officials said were extraordinary.
