When are flights cancelled due to wind?

Last updated on April 25, 2023

Flights are usually cancelled due to wind when the weather creates a dangerous situation for the aircraft. This can happen when winds are too strong or in extreme cases, when there is turbulence that makes it too difficult to control the aircraft safely. Additionally, if the wind speed at the runway is too strong, it can cause issues with take-off and landings, resulting in flight cancellations.
