The airline I booked my ticket from has cancelled flights to Toronto because of the Toronto shooting.
On Friday, the flight from Edmonton to Toronto, which was supposed to arrive at 11:30am, was delayed by 20 minutes due to the Toronto shootings, according to a statement from Southwest Airlines.
The plane left Edmonton at 1:00pm.
It landed in Toronto at 1pm and arrived at 3:30pm.
The airline confirmed that all of its flights to the city are cancelled.
Southwest Airlines issued a statement on Twitter that said, “We are taking this very seriously and will provide the appropriate assistance as we have done for the past several weeks.
We appreciate the patience and understanding of our customers and our partners.”
It’s unclear whether this is a direct result of the shootings or if the delays were due to weather.
If it is the latter, it’s unclear how long the delay will last.
In a statement, Southwest Airlines said, it has been in contact with local police and the Federal Aviation Administration.
