MOSCOW, November 3 (Itar-Tass) - Thirty-two airplanes have flied away from the Moscow airport Vnukovo to the backup airfields over foil weather conditions, a source in the air navigation services of the Moscow air hub told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
“A total of 32 flights were redirected to the backup airfields. The crews of 22 airplanes decided to fly away already in the area of the airport, another ten airplanes decided to fly to the backup airfields at the approaches to Moscow,” the source said.
“The course beacon, which had broken before, is operational now, but the weather is difficult, as the visibility is less than 300 metres, the lower level of clouds is less than 30 metres,” he said.
The weather at the Vnukovo airport is improving, the source at the Moscow air hub noted.
According to the source, after the first runway is opened at Vnukovo after reconstruction, the airplanes will be able to land in any weather conditions, “even almost blindly.”
The runway was previously planned to reopen in early November, but it was delayed until the middle of this month.
The information service of the airport reported that “the airport operates according the actual weather” and “the airplanes arrive and depart, though there is some lag behind the flight schedule.”
