DENVER — Flights at Denver International Airport (DIA) saw delays Sunday due to heavy winds.
According to FlightAware, 606 flights were delayed and 36 flights were canceled at DIA.
Emily Williams, a spokesperson for DIA, said the FAA puts restrictions on flights because of weather and limits the number of planes that can land per hour.
All six runways are open, Williams said Sunday evening, and it’s up to the pilot’s discretion which runway they land on, with permission from the tower.
Inbound flights were delayed at their origin at an average of one hour, 24 minutes due to wind, FlightAware said.
DIA tweeted Sunday advising travelers to check with their airlines on the latest information regarding flight statuses.
