Flights across Europe were limping back to normalcy after some of the worst disruptions caused by an unusually harsh winter, but heavy snow and freezing conditions continued to cause misery on the roads and for the railways.
Continental Europe’s largest air hub in Frankfurt, which was almost paralysed by several days of heavy snowfall, said it is now back to its normal schedule, even though around 50 out of 860 planned flights had to be cancelled.
The airport had cancelled more than 600 daily flights when the flight disruptions reached their peak last week.
The last remaining passengers among around 3,500 air travellers stranded in Frankfurt since the snow chaos began a week ago, boarded planes bound for their destinations, an airport spokesman said. (PNA/PTI)
