Wind and snow snarl, delay and make life generally miserable for commuters

Copenhagen Airport came to a standstill this morning as strong gusts of winds forced the cancellation of all outbound flights and prevented incoming flights from landing.

Service resumed around 8am, but delays were expected to continue throughout the morning and the airport advised passengers to keep up-to-date on their website

The snow and wind has also affected traffic on land. After working all weekend to clear the roads of the 40 centimetres of snow that fell on Friday and Saturday, crews were again at work this morning ploughing and salting after last night’s snowfall.

DSB was also running fewer trains than normal due to the winter weather. In Copenhagen, S-trains were slowed by blowing snow and a power outage at Central Station. The weather-related delays came in addition to reduced service and altered timetables due to construction at Central Station.

Metro services were running, as normal but delays are expected. Travellers between Vanløse and Vestamager/Lufthavnen (both ways) will need to change at Frederiksberg and Øresund stations.
