Severe Weather conditions lead to cancelled flights at Barajas

Tue 12th Jan 2010

About 166 flights have been cancelled at Madrid's Barajas International Airport and several others delayed for about six hours owing to the heaps of snow and fog that have enveloped the area.

Airport authorities reported that the airport's four runways are operational despite the fact that the ice accumulation has slowed down the activities of the ground crews.

The airports and civil aviation agency said about the necessity to de-ice the planes before each takeoff owing to the snowstorms that hit the area on Sunday. The operation requires the time of up to one hour for large aircraft whereas a minimum time of 20 minutes for smaller planes.
