Hurricane Sandy causes CAL to cancel 12 flights
Yesterday hundreds of Caribbean Airlines Ltd (CAL) passengers had their flights in and out of JFK International Airport, New York, cancelled as Hurricane Sandy threatened to wreak havoc along the eastern seaboard of the United States. Sandy, which has killed at least 66 people across the Caribbean forced CAL to cancel 12 flights, mostly to and from JFK.
Flights BW011 and BW017 were cancelled. Ten of today’s flights have also been cancelled: BW520/521, 016, 524, 525, 424, 015, 014, 011 and 017. On its Web site, CAL said the cancellations were prompted by adverse weather conditions affecting the eastern seaboard.
Yesterday, Clint Williams, head of corporate communications at CAL, said most other flights to Jamaica and Guyana were unaffected. He said the airline would inform passengers of changes to flight schedules through its Web site. Williams said as soon as JFK airport reopens, CAL will put on extra flights to make up for those passengers who have been displaced as a result of the adverse weather conditions.
