Impact of snow and freezing rain on aviation and airport operation


Roland Winkler talks about rules and regulations that are in place at airports to provide passenger security in harsh winter weather.


The weather still has a major impact on aviation today. Weather forecasts in aviation not only support safety, but also provide important input on the subject of economical air traffic. As part of this presentation, I would like to give a rough overview of how air traffic works in the cold season. I will speak about de- and anti-icing of aircraft and the snow removal in the airside area. Finally, I will show which meteorological products are created to support safe and economical air traffic.
