Heavy Snowfall Grounds 200 Flights in Germany’s Munich, Frankfurt Airports

BERLIN – Around 200 scheduled flights from Germany’s Munich and Frankfurt airports were grounded Friday amid weather alerts for heavy snowfalls, authorities said.

Munich airport said it had canceled 90 of its scheduled flights as the Bavarian capital continued to be blanketed in snow amid weather warnings in the populous southern German region and added that it had also had to cancel another 20 due to a strike.

Meanwhile, in Frankfurt, in the central region of Hesse, authorities were forced to scrap some 120 flights due to similar conditions.

Germany’s state weather agency, DWD, applied weather warnings for all southern and central regions of the country due to the cold snap.

On Thursday, a seven-year-old child was killed when a tree weighed down with snow fell on top of him in Aying, a municipality outside Munich.

Civil protection units and members of the armed forces were on hand in several areas of Bavaria to clear accumulated snow from roads and houses following several days of incessant precipitation.

Various road and rail networks in rural Bavaria have been cut off, officials said.

The snowy weather was also affecting neighboring Austria and Switzerland, where numerous schools have remained closed since the winter break.
