SOCHI, January 19 (Itar-Tass) — Airports in Russia’s southern resort cities of Sochi and Gelendzhik were closed on Thursday because of bad weather, a spokesman for Bazel Aero, a managing company of Russian southern airports, told Itar-Tass.
The Sochi airport was closed from 14:00 Moscow time because of poor visibility, while the airport in Gelendzhik was closed because of heavy snow, the spokesman said.
An airplane of the UTair airlines bound from Moscow’s Vnukovo to Gelendzhik had to land in Anapa.
“According to weather forecasts, no improvement is expected before 17:00 Moscow time. Airports in Anapa and Krasnodar are operating in a regular regime,” the spokesman added.
