CYYR/Goose Bay Runway Closure

9th November 2017

CYYR/Goose Bay has been closed by the Canadian Department of National Defence, following the discovery of a problem with their runways.  

Runway 08/26 is completely closed, and Runway 16/34 is closed to all except Medevac flights, with a shortened Landing Distance Available of 7600 feet.

The Airport has said that emergency flights will be considered on a "case by case basis". However, for now, carrying CYYR as an ETOPS alternate does not make sense.

Current Notams show the airport closed until 2359Z today, Nov 9, though that may be extended.
