Weather conditions prevailing in Poland do not cause disruption to air traffic
Polish airports have recorded no weather-related disruption in the air traffic.
Things get back to normal also at other airports in Europe following a sudden cold snap.
Flight cancellations or delays observed are not generated by Warszawa FIR (Flight Information Region).
Today Poland is affected by weather conditions, which vary depending on geographical regions:
The Sub-Carpathian Region [Podkarpacie] recorded temperatures above freezing (+ 0° Celsius ).
In the Mazovian [Mazowsze] region, Lower and Upper Silesia [Dolny i Górny Śląsk] temperature ranges from 0 to below 2 ° Celsius.
In other regions of Poland temperature readings were below 5 ° Celsius .
The Pomerania Region proved coldest (below 10 ° Celsius).
Such adverse weather conditions pose a threat to the aviation transport related chiefly with the dangerous icing of aircraft, runways or aprons.
The airport operators are obliged to undertake a number of necessary activities to combat challenging weather conditions involving, among others, aircraft de-icing, runways or aprons de-snowing procedures.
