Winter Storm Contributing to Unusual Air Traffic PatternsPosted on January 22, 2018
Strong northeasterly winds associated with a winter storm today are contributing to unusual air traffic patterns and runway use at at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP). Early this morning, aircraft inbound to MSP were directed by Air Traffic Controllers to begin using Runway 35 for arrivals and Runway 4 for departures. Typically aircraft will arrive and depart MSP using the parallel runways, but today's blustery wind from the northeast requires different runways be used.
