Thick Fog Cancels Flights In and Out of Lewiston

Posted By on Sat, Nov 30, 2013 at 2:00 PM

A thick blanket of fog opened up November 29 (but only briefly) to allow a Horizon Air jet to land at Lewiston Airport, the first flight to touch down since November 27. The airline usually runs three flights a day in and out of Lewiston.

This morning's Lewiston Tribune reports that all landings and departures were pushed away from the Lewiston-Nez Perce County Regional Airport, meaning Thanksgiving travellers had to be diverted to Boise International Airport or the Moscow-Pullman Regional Airport.

"We're at the mercy of the weather," Horizon Air spokeswoman Felicia Kelley-Nando told the Tribune, adding that she had not seen the airport "quite so socked in" in her three years in Lewiston.

Meanwhile the National Weather Service said an air stagnation advisory for the Lewiston region remains in effect through Sunday, December 1.

A number of outgoing flights remain idle on Lewiston's runway.
