Southern Air Inc has just released a revised schedule for the first 747 refueling stop. The new schedule and time has the aircraft arriving into Prince George at 0800hrs and departing at 0930 direct to Caracas Venezuela.
Arriving late into Hong Kong, the carrier experienced operational issues regarding slot times into Chitose Airport, Sapporo Japan – forcing a new routing and schedule to be developed.
“We are extremely happy that Southern Air and their operations department were able to make this work” said John Gibson, Airport CEO. “It’s the nature of the industry, delays happen which are uncontrollable we understand this. Through the hard work of Southern Air operations and dispatch – a viable routing through YXS was continued. We are very appreciative of their efforts today.”
Updated information on this flight as it becomes available will be posted on the PGAA website – www.pgairport.ca under news releases / updates.
