Destination/Date not set
Heavy rain such as a cloudburst can occasionally be a problem for air traffic because there is a risk of aircraft hydroplaning on the runway.
When fog reduces visibility at the airport, it can be necessary to restrict aircraft landings.
Before the winter months arrive, the Airside Support crew spend many hours training and preparing their equipment so the airport can continue operations, even when the weather is not cooperating.
When it snows, a 3.6-kilometre-long and 46-metre-wide runway can be cleared in 20 minutes.
When winter bares its teeth and brings freezing temperatures, ice, sleet and snow, it is important to keep it from affecting the functionality, stability and control of the aircraft.
Freezing rain and sleet are no fun for aircraft or for Copenhagen Airport.
