NEW YORK, February 14, (ITAR-TASS). Snowstorms battering northeast states of the U.S. brought about cancellations or delays of more than a half of domestic flights Thursday but U.S. airport authorities are doing their best to ensure departures of international flights on schedule, Andrei Novokshchenov, who heads the office of Russian national flag carrier Aeroflot in the U.S., told Itar-Tass.
“Our U.S. partners in New York and Washington are putting their best efforts into ensuring normal schedules,” he said. “Air navigation services and the personnel of international airports are straining every sinew to fulfill obligations to international airlines and their customers.”
“All the Aeroflot flights are landing and taking off on time,” Novokshchenov said.
In the meantime, weather forecasters say snowstorms in the northeast of the U.S. will likely continue until next Tuesday as a minimum. Snow precipitation in York City totaled 30 centimeters Thursday afternoon on the background of a rise of air temperatures to 4 degrees Celsius.
The snowfall transforming into sleet is expected to gain more intensity in the coming few hours.
