7 jets diverted to Fairbanks

Seven passenger jets were diverted to Fairbanks from Anchorage to avoid the high winds in Alaska’s largest city.

Fairbanks International Airport spokeswoman Angie Spear tells the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner that 740 unscheduled passengers were at the facility.

Several airlines had flown out of Fairbanks by early Wednesday morning. Alaska Airlines spokesman Paul McElroy says all passengers from his airline’s four diverted flights had reached Anchorage by mid-afternoon Wednesday.
