Yellowknife, NWT – First Air has cancelled some flights out of Yellowknife and rescheduled others Friday because its suppliers were unable to provide the required fuel.

In a news release, the airline blamed a significantly reduced availability of fuel for the cancellation of a flight from Yellowknife to Iqaluit.

Four other flights between Yellowknife, Hay River and Fort Simpson were also rescheduled Friday.

First Air says its fuel suppliers have been unable to guarantee required fuel quantities because of closures along Highway 3.

First Air says its flight schedule for the next few days also has to be revised, with priority being given to essential services to allow for medical travel and cargo.
