Hundreds of Flights Cancelled Across Europe Due to Snow and Bad Weather

On Monday, northern Europe was still dealing with the severe winter weather that brought with it snow and freezing rain.  In the wake of the storm, hundreds of flights across Europe were cancelled.  In Frankfurt, 40% of their flight schedule was cancelled for the day.  London’s Heathrow, which is the busiest airport on the continent, cancelled 20% of its flights.  At Paris’s Charles de Gaulle Airport, the civil aviation authority said that 40% of their flights would be cancelled.


At Heathrow, officials explain that the cancellations were a result of poor visibility and problems elsewhere in Europe.  Since 2010, Heathrow has spent 36 million pounds ($57 million) in upgrading their snow removal equipment.  However, even in Munich, a city that is accustomed to getting severe winter weather, the airport cancelled 161 flights.  In addition, train service across the continent was also affected and roads were a mess.
