Alternate airport

Post by NEBOJSA » Thu May 29, 2008 4:39 pm

I am not a pilot but just wondering if Westjet could not land at Winnipeg what would be the alternate airport.Would it land at any airport that could handle a 737 or would it go to another airport served by WJA.Same for Thunder Bay or any other airport like that.

Thanks,Nesho

Depends on the scenario of course. Data bases close to YWG in our FMC include, but are not limited to, YHD (Dryden) YBR (Brandon) YQK (Kenora) YTH (Thompson) and Portage la Prairie. I know of a charter in and out of Prince Albert (5000 ft???) with fire fighters. Having said that, it opens many doors as long as the runway/taxiway has the wieght limitation.
