BULLHEAD CITY, Ariz. (AP) - Inclement weather caused air traffic at Laughlin/Bullhead International Airport to be a little heavier than usual Sunday afternoon.

The Mohave Valley Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/2qTUOQa ) officials diverted four commercial passenger flights to the Bullhead City airport from Las Vegas McCarran International Airport due to thunderstorms and wind.

Laughlin/Bullhead International Airport Director Jeremy Keating says occurrences such as these are rare, happening about two or three times a year.

Keating also says Bullhead City airport’s proximity to Las Vegas makes it an ideal location for flights that are short of fuel to remain in the holding pattern to wait out the weather.
