ST. JOHN’S – The airport expansion project at St. John’s International Airport is in high gear, but the airport will be putting commercial airliners at risk by temporarily shortening the runway length to 6,000FT.
The airport announced on Twitter that the runway will be reduced to 6,000FT for two weeks to complete work on the intersection. Also, the airport implied that “good visibility” will be needed for flights operating to and from CYYT. This is something that should not be overlooked as the weather on the Canadian east coast is never consistent.
