Perhaps BAA should learn from Finavia, the operator of HEL. How to cope with snow and two parallel runways
Why would BAA even consult with Finavia?
gets an average of 70 cm of snowfall every year. Hardly anything to brag about !
As i stated above (reply 7), BAA already consulted with airports that receive substantial amounts of snowfall per year, and that clearly isn't HEL
. One such airport, YUL
, receives on average 230cm + of snowfall every year, and it was consulted by BAA. So was ZRH
, both of which receive more snowfall than HEL
You no longer have to worry about BAA and LHR
. As proven by the last few posts above, the situation there has improved considerably, and is now at par with most international airports.
us Air Traffic Controllers have a good record, we haven't left one up there yet !!
