Gatwick Airport reopens after snow disruption
Friday 03 December 2010
Gatwick Airport reopened today after being closed for two days because of heavy snowfall
Here is the full statement issued by the airport.
"Gatwick Airport has safely reopened this morning after round-the-clock working to clear snow and ice from the runway and taxiways.
"Weather forecasters are predicting freezing fog during most of today, so passengers should expect further disruption, with flights limited and delays and cancellations inevitable. Passengers should also be advised that it is likely to take a few days before flight schedules return to normal.
"Train services to and from the airport will continue to be limited and road networks are likely to remain severely affected by the weather.
"Given all this, our advice to passengers is do not travel to the airport without first checking with your airline to make sure that your flight is departing today."
