Las Vegas Flights Diverted to Ontario and Phoenix Due to Wind

Strong winds caused a number of Las Vegas flights to be diverted to airports in Ontario and Phoenix, according to an announcement made by officials on Tuesday evening.  Ian Gregor, a spokesperson for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in Los Angeles, said the winds were creating moderate to severe turbulence for flights in the region.  They have yet to determine how many flights have been affected, but high winds are expected into tomorrow.

Gregor said that they have a ground delay program in effect at McCarran International Airport for airports that are within a 1600 mile radius.  The program controls the flow of departures for the Las Vegas airport from those airports, achieving a manageable arrival rate at Las Vegas.  Officials at the airport said that some flights were delayed by as much as 2 hours and 37 minutes.  Passengers in the airport or on planes waiting to depart Las Vegas were waiting for up to an hour.
