EC blasts 'unacceptable airport chaos'

The European Commission criticised airport authorities in western Europe for failing to prepare for the bad weather as heavy snowfall and freezing temperatures were still severely disrupting air traffic in Europe on Tuesday, reports the Wall Street Journal.

In a statement, the European Commission's transport-policy chief said the commission may draft new rules if airport operators would not take action voluntarily to plan better for severe weather: "It is unacceptable and should not happen again." Airport operators urge passengers to check flight schedules before departing for airports.
