VOLGOGRAD, December 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Volgograd international airport in Russia's southern federal district, closed since Tuesday due to heavy snowfall and blizzard conditions, is open again to arriving flights and departures.
Flights from Moscow and Mineralyniye Vody have arrived. Earliest scheduled services will leave for Surgut, the airport administration told Itar-Tass. After two days of no-fly weather paralyzing operations, disrupted schedules are being corrected, the administration said.
Problems arrived with a heavy cyclone sweeping Volgograd region on December 10. Weather service estimates over the past two days put precipitation levels above a month's norm. On December 11, regional authorities enforced an emergency regime which remains in force.
But conditions have improved. It is no longer snowing, winds have subsided, a light frost has descended and some sunshine has appeared.
