Flights were grounded for around two hours Sunday night at the Winnipeg James Richardson International Airport due to a “security incident” and flights are gradually resuming now. Outbound flights resumed taking off around 6:50 am but many will be delayed because of the long line of planes waiting. A spokesperson for the Winnipeg Airports Authority said that baggage drop areas have returned to normal after being shut down for the security investigation. Twelve flights were affected Sunday afternoon during and after the “incident,” which involved baggage. No flights were canceled. The spokesperson went on to say that the investigation is still ongoing. No other details were provided.
