Incident at GANDER INTL NL (CYQX) (ATS operating irregularity)


2000-01-20: ARN810 DH8 landing Gander was cleared for a Straight In ILS approach for runway 04. The ACC controller missed the Radar Point out to the Tower (normally given when the arrival is 15 NM to 20 NM out). Until the aircraft was 10 nm from landing. The aircraft was changed over to Tower frequency but the tower changed the aircraft back to the ACC Controller when the aircraft was at 7 nm because there was not enough time to remove snow clearing equipment from the runway. ARN810 was vectored for the new approach but incurred approximately a seven to eight minute delay. Nil TSB
