DFW Airport Media Statement: Winter Storm Warning

Published on : Saturday, December 7, 2013

DFW-international-airportDallas/Fort Worth International Airport remains under a winter storm warning as freezing rain continues to fall in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Current conditions at DFW include freezing rain and temperature of 30 degrees. Roads around the Airport are passable but treacherous with slushy and icy conditions reported on roadways, bridges and overpasses.

Airlines have preemptively cancelled over 330 departures scheduled for Friday, December 6 from DFW Airport, primarily morning departures. That figure represents about 40% of the Friday flight schedule. There are only a handful of departures still scheduled every hour before 11:00 AM.

DFW Airport advises all passengers with flights or those meeting flights to check with their airlines for the latest flight information, or check the Flight Information page at flights or by downloading the Official DFW Airport Mobile App.

The Airport’s de-icing facilities are operational and the airlines are conducting de-icing operations for every departure. DFW Airfield Operations crews are monitoring the runways, ramps and taxiways on the airfield, which have been treated with de-icing agents.

For vehicle traffic, DFW has treated the roadways and overpasses on the Airport grounds. The Airport’s road plows are being deployed as needed, and DFW is working with the Texas Department of Transportation to make sure the highways around the Airport are treated with de-icing agents and sand. DFW also advises motorists making their way to the Airport to exercise extreme caution as they drive.

Inside the Airport terminals, DFW Customer Service teams are monitoring checkpoints and Customs as well as passenger activity, and will provide assistance as needed. This is yet another outstanding opportunity for the key players of the Hungarian cargo and logistics industry to meet their international partners in Budapest. This is the 14th Freighter and Belly Cargo Conference. Last year Abu Dhabi hosted the meeting where delegates from all continents have held discussions about the future of the industry. The event is organized by Air Cargo Media Ltd., publisher of Air Cargo News and Freighters World.

“I am very pleased to announce that air cargo industry leaders will be travelling to Budapest next September to take part in the annual debate and discussion about freighters and how they fit into today’s belly cargo world.” said Patricia Cooper, General Manager of the Events Division of Air Cargo Media Ltd. She added: “We will attract more top speakers than ever before – especially from Asia, Latin America and Africa – as we focus directly on the challenges driving the industry.”

“We more than welcome delegates of the aviation cargo industry in Budapest and our airport will do everything in its power to make this event successful for the participants.” commented Rene Droese, Property Director of Budapest Airport and responsible for the cargo area. He also noted: “After the success of Routes Europe 2013 conference in Hungary brought here by Budapest Airport we are proud to meet industry leaders from the air freight sector.”

This year Budapest Airport has started the development of the BUD Airport Business Park with a great new logistics facility. The 17,000 square meters center for DHL Global Forwarding and DHL Freight (offices and warehouse) which was developed with a 10 million Euros investment has been officially opened this October. This is the first phase of the Business Park development which offers excellent logistics and office areas still available for new tenants on the South edge of the airport.
