Airports closed as Europe shivers in fresh snowfalls
Geneva airport closed last night and won't open before at least 2 p.m. local time after snow covered the city and region.
More heavy snowfalls forced the closure of some of Europe's busiest airports and chaos on the roads Wednesday as forecasters warned there would be no let-up in the freezing temperatures until next week.
"We've had an incredible quantity of snow and it's still falling," said airport spokesman Bertrand Staempfli, who asked passengers with flights before 2 p.m. not to travel to the airport
London's Gatwick Airport, Europe's eighth busiest passenger air hub, was shut until at least 0600 GMT Thursday as staff worked to clear the two runways. Edinburgh Airport, Scotland's busiest, was also shut due to heavy snow showers
Snow, the first fall of it this season, greeted Londoners on Tuesday.
