BWI opens second runway; traffic resuming
This just in from the Maryland Aviation Administration:
** Both of BWI's main commercial runways are now open.
** By afternoon, airline carriers at BWI Marshall were flying near-normal schedules, with few reported cancellations.
** Southwest Airlines has announced flight cancellations for Tuesday and Wednesday at BWI, Dulles, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and other markets. For details, see-- http://www.southwest.com/html/travel_center/midatlantic_winter_storm_beg_5feb.html
** To prepare for the next expected storm, snow-removal crews, both Airport employees and contractors, will be activated on Tuesday. The snow teams will work to remove snow and ice from Airport runways, taxiways, and ramp areas, as well as public roadways, parking lots, and sidewalks.
** With a potentially significant snowfall expected, BWI Marshall Airport customers may want to consider parking under cover in one of the Airport’s parking garages.
