If You're Catching A Flight Today... Than You Might Not Be

If You're Catching A Flight Today... Than You Might Not Be”

The average delay has been approximately one and a half hours with Sydney Airport saying they will commence operations as normal later today, but passengers need to be aware that flight times are likely to change thanks to the wind.

So far, domestic flights to Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane and the Gold Coast have been affected, as well as global flights to Singapore, Shanghai and Fuzhou.

Regional services to Dubbo, in the state's central-west, and Port Macquarie, on the mid north coast, have also been cancelled.

Two runways are open but it's expected planes will be reduced to using a single runway later on Friday morning, the spokeswoman said.

Those flying domestically or internationally have been asked to check the status of their flight before heading to Sydney Airport.

Winds of up to 72 km/h caused the closure of two runways at the airport yesterday and cancelled more than 70 flights on Qantas, Virgin, Jetstar, Tiger and REX.

Huge queues have gathered at Sydney Airport as passengers from yesterday's backlog wait for rescheduled flights.

The Bureau of Meteorology has cancelled its wind warning for Sydney after gusts above 50km/h were measured earlier this morning.

A fire at Richmond Vale, near Cessnock, was brought under control on Thursday but not before it ripped through a historic rail museum, causing $1m damage.
