Several flights cancelled from Winnipeg to Pearson Airport in Mississauga.

Record-breaking warm temperatures for this day in March could be on tap at Pearson Airport in Mississauga, but snowy weather out west has caused several flight cancellations from Winnipeg to Canada’s biggest and busiest airport.

Pearson officials said late Monday morning via social media that airlines have cancelled three of the 15 flights scheduled to bring travellers from Winnipeg Richardson International Airport to Pearson today.

They added eight flights are scheduled to depart Pearson for Winnipeg on Monday and so far all of them are a go.

Meanwhile, Winnipeg Airport officials posted to X (formerly Twitter) early Monday morning that the weather story there still has much to do with the worst winter can bring.

“Winter storms that swept across the Prairies this weekend continue to impact flights,” they said. “Remember to check the status of your flight before leaving home.”

At Pearson, by contrast, “it’s a foggy morning at the airport. Operation-wise, we’re off to a smooth start to the week with passengers moving through the terminals. Mother Nature may bring record-breaking heat as temperatures could climb above the 13.3 C daily record-high recorded by Environment Canada 50 years ago,” airport officials said in an early morning X post today.
