Unalaska Flight Diverts Due to Good Weather

Alexandra Gutierrez, KUCB – Unalaska

When you take a trip to Unalaska, it’s often advised that you give yourself a few days on each end in the event of flight cancellations.  Reachable only by air or water, and it’s often plagued by fog, rain, hail, or snow. But yesterday, a flight was canceled due to good weather.

A PenAir plane heading to Unalaska was stopped in Cold Bay, after a high-pressure system made it difficult to read the altimeter. This is only the second time in Alaska’s history that flight has been affected by pleasant weather.

The plane ultimately was redirected back to Anchorage.
