February 18, 2013 — Travellers at Toronto Pearson International Airport were facing scores of delays and cancellations Sunday, partly due to a flight backlog from snowfall on Saturday.

More than 100 flights to and from destinations including Quebec and the eastern U.S. were cancelled or pushed back after a similar number of cancellations on Saturday. 

Greater Toronto Airports Authority spokesman Scott Armstrong said the impact of snow at the airport Saturday, as well as a storm that was hitting northeastern states, were responsible for the scrapped or delayed flights. 

Armstrong said it was hoped the leftover cancellations from the start-of-weekend Ontario snow would be cleared by Sunday evening, though he warned there could be more changes to flight schedules due to the U.S. storm. 

Travellers were advised to check the status of their flights before heading to the airport.
