Shepparton News - - NATIONALNEWS -

SYD­NEY: Syd­ney Air­port pas­sen­gers con­tinue to face de­lays, with strong winds show­ing no signs of eas­ing and 50 flights al­ready can­celled on Fri­day.

The in­ter­rup­tions fol­low wild winds on Thurs­day which forced the ground­ing of more than 70 flights and the clo­sure of two of three run­ways.

Gusts of 57 km/h were recorded at Kings­ford Smith on Fri­day morn­ing and the ex­pec­ta­tion was they would in­crease later in the day, a spokes­woman for Syd­ney Air­port told AAP.

Two run­ways were open but it was likely planes would be re­duced to us­ing a sin­gle run­way by Fri­day af­ter­noon, Air Ser­vices Aus­tralia spokes­woman Sarah Ful­ton told AAP.
