As Winter Storm Bears down on Vancouver area, Air Canada, WestJet begin to cancel flights, including some Northwest options

Yesterday's flight track from Flight Aware of the
Vancouver to Prince Rupert Flight.
Today's schedule has been scrapped after Air Canada 
made some proactive cancellations ahead of a major 
snow storm set to hit the Lower Mainland later this afternoon

It may be perfect looking day for a flight out of Prince Rupert, but events percolating south of the city have put the Daily Flight to Vancouver off the departures board for today.

In what has been described as a proactive measure, both Air Canada and WestJet have begun to cancel flights between Vancouver and Destinations across the province.  

With the Daily Prince Rupert Arrival and Departure among those now on the cancelled list.

The YVR online flight status board tells the tale for
air travel in and out of Prince Rupert today
as Vancouver prepares for a major winter storm

So far the YPR information stream has not made note of the change in status for the flight.

Morning flights into Terrace were not impacted by the announcement, though Wednesday's early morning departure for WestJet has already been put on the Cancellation list. 

The Smithers Air Canada flight today is also on the list of those now cancelled.

You can review the evolving list of the lasted cancellations  from the YVR Departures board here.

The Greater Vancouver region is anticipating  up to 20 cm of snow for North Vancouver and points east to Coquitlam and into the Fraser Valley. 

Richmond which is the home for YVR is expected to receive ups to 15cm by Wednesday morning.

Other communities on Vancouver island are also anticipating similar amounts of snow.
