Gateway flights return to normal today

Flights between Bermuda and the US are expected to return to normal today, with Continental Airlines planning an extra flight to Newark to accommodate stranded passengers.

Airport duty officer Charlotte Bosch De Noya said yesterday: “Continental will be having an extra flight as they have not flown Sunday and Monday, but apart from that I see nothing to suggest that we won’t be back to regular flights.”

She said that JetBlue will also return to a normal schedule today, with the carrier yesterday afternoon operating its first flight between Bermuda and New York since the weekend.

“The aircraft that came in on Saturday from New York, that actually stayed in Bermuda, but it flew back at around 5pm,” she said.

Hundreds of flights were cancelled over the weekend as Hurricane Irene travelled up the US East Coast, bringing with it high winds, rain and flooding.

Flights between the East Coast and Bermuda were cancelled, stranding hundreds of would-be travellers on the Island.
