Travellers planning to fly out of Pearson Airport in Mississauga tonight (March 3) and tomorrow aboard Air Canada planes are being urged to check ahead as flights might be delayed or cancelled due to a strong winter storm headed to the GTA.

Air Canada officials say flights “may be impacted by forecasted winter operational conditions” as Mississauga and the GTA are expected to be hit with a winter blast that could drop as much as 30 centimetres of snow on the region by Saturday morning.

They add the airline has revised its ticketing policy today to make is easier for passengers on affected flights to make changes to their bookings without penalty.

Environment Canada has issued a winter storm warning for the area, saying there will be significantly reduced visibility due to heavy and blowing snow.

Snow accumulation is also expected to be significant, the warning notes.

While Pearson Airport officials have yet to issue notice to travellers using other airlines, all travellers should check with their carrier ahead of time to determine if their flights are impacted by the storm.
