DENVER (AP) — High winds have diverted 23 flights that were scheduled to land at Denver International Airport.
Airport officials say winds up to 48 mph Thursday night diverted the flights to other airports, but the planes were returning to Denver once they refueled.
The airport averages about 1,700 flights per day.
The Denver Post reports that on Wednesday evening, as smoke from fires around the state reduced visibility, the airport closed two of four runways and briefly trimmed the number of arrivals and departures it was handling.
