Tórge and Néugrade Airports Reopen After Storm

Tórge and Néugrade International Airports, as well as several other regional airports, have reopened today after having been closed for four days due to the Baltic wind storm "Jothan".

The airports are now operating on a limited schedule with service restored to several major cities. However, repairs will continue on the airport grounds through next week.

They were originally closed because of high winds and ice storms caused by the cyclone, which grounded traffic, damaged terminals and airplanes, and threw debris all over the runways. As airplanes and runways are being de-iced, full service should begin to return. In the meantime, several terminals remain closed because of wind damage, debris-covered roads, and damaged airplanes.

Full service should return by next week.
