WINTER WEATHER-RELATED FLIGHT DIVERSIONS

Winter weather- we sure love that snow, except when it affects air travel! This winter Fly Sun Valley Alliance has been working with the airlines and Sun Valley Express to improve the diversion busing experience, including newer motorcoaches, helpful airport hosts, on-call drivers and more. The response so far has been positive as we collectively work to make this experience as pleasant as possible for SUN air travelers, and get them to their final destination.

Planned Flight Diversions: Usually the flight diversions are planned in advance, as weather forecast or current conditions necessitate. In this case, complimentary motorcoach transportation is arranged for both in and outbound SUN passengers to the diverted airport, usually requiring the outbound SUN passengers to get to the airport in Hailey several hours in advance of their scheduled flight departure time.

Unplanned Flight Diversions: Unplanned diversions are when the flight attempts to land at SUN but is not ultimately able to do so and therefore must divert to an alternate airport. In this situation, the flight passengers will be accommodated with complimentary motorcoach transportation from TWF or BOI to SUN, but there is not sufficient time to get outbound SUN passengers on a motorcoach to TWF or BOI to catch the diverted flight without dramatically affecting that flight’s down-line connections, so those passengers will be accommodated by the airline on the next best available flight on either its own system or another SUN airline.

Flight Cancellations: As can happen at any airport due to unforeseen circumstances (weather at down-line airports, mechanical situations, etc.) occassionally flights get outright cancelled to or from SUN. If they do, the airlines will do their best to accommodate travelers on the next best available flight on any carrier the airline has agreements with, whether from SUN, TWF, or BOI.  Providing the best possible customer service to passengers is very important to our SUN airline partners.

If you are traveling from SUN this winter, please make sure you are informed about the diversion busing procedures for each SUN airline.Here are some key tips:

  • Always make sure that your airline reservation record has both an email and a cell (or best available) phone contact. This is what the airlines use to alert passengers in advance of a change in flight status and let them know what time to get to the SUN airport in Hailey to catch the bus transportation to an alternative airport if the flight is going to be diverted.
  • Always call the local SUN weather hotline for your airline well in advance of your flight to confirm flight and bussing status. Please listen CAREFULLY to the information provided and plan accordingly.
