BARNAUL, November 8 (Itar-Tass) — Barnaul airport, which suspended its work earlier this Tuesday because of heavy snow, again works as normal.
The runway is completely cleared and is ready to accept landing aircraft, an airport source told Itar-Tass.
Because of the heavy snowfall, Barnaul could not accept three morning flights from Moscow. One of the airliners had to land in Kemerovo. The other two waited in Moscow for the weather in Barnaul to improve.
Barnaul's international airport named in honour of Gherman Titov was closed from 02:00 a.m. on Tuesday due to the adverse weather conditions.
According to the Altai meteorological centre, the precipitation fall was equal to almost ten days' level. Chief regional meteorologist Alexander Lyutsiger said it would continue snowing later this Tuesday. It is expected to reach 15 days' level.
Appropriate services in the city are working intensively to deal with the situation, but fail to cope with problem so far. The traffic is impeded. There are huge jams on the roads.
