Commercial flights cancelled at Delta County Airport until further notice

ESCANABA — Until further notice, all inbound and outbound commercial flights are cancelled at the Delta County Airport.

It’s because of malfunctioning FAA weather equipment. Airport staff in Escanaba say federal rules forbid anyone to work on the equipment other than FAA employees.

Because today is a federal holiday, the equipment can’t be inspected until tomorrow morning. Airport staff members say they expect to be informed tomorrow by the FAA how long the repairs will take.
