Travellers planning to fly to or from Montreal-Trudeau Airport were facing difficulties Saturday.

Officials temporarily shut down operations at the airport due to freezing rain in the area, according to the CBC, but flights have since resumed. A message posted to the airport website advised travellers to speak to their airlines.

Operations are gradually starting back. Thanks for your understanding. For more information on departures and arrivals, please contact your carrier.

One runway is now operational, but the two-hour delay has created some travel backlog. Around 145 flights have been affected, according to CTV, many of which have been cancelled.

For more information, you can head to the airport's website.
