MOSCOW, December 4 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow airports had been operating in a usual mode on Tuesday morning despite a heavy snowfall in Moscow, representatives of the Moscow air harbors told Itar-Tass.
Spokesman for Sheremetyevo airport Roman Genis said that all the flights were performed according to the central flight schedule. The airport's services have been removing snow and ice from runways, taxiing grounds and the aircraft parking areas in a non-stop regime. The territory of the airport has been permanently processed with deicing agents, the spokesman said.
Spokeswoman for Vnukovo airport Yelena Krylova confirmed that Vnukovo airport operated in a routine mode. Both the Vnukovo spokeswoman and her colleague from Sheremetyevo have recommended to air passengers taking “aeroexpress” trains so as to arrive at their respective airports on time.
Domodedovo airport has observed its arrival and departure flight schedule as well. All the runways and taxiing grounds have been cleared of snow and processed with deicing agents, a Domodedovo source said.
On Tuesday morning experts assessed traffic jams in the city prior to the "rush hour” at level 9 on 10-level scale. By Tuesday afternoon the traffic situation in Moscow improved with traffic jams in the city dropping to level 8.
