Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport to Cut Flights by 20% on Snow

Feb. 10 (Bloomberg) -- Paris Charles de Gaulle airport, the main hub serving the French capital, was ordered to cut flights by 20 percent today because of expected snow, the French civil aviation authority said.

Snowfall will be less heavy than previously forecast, meaning restrictions for Paris Orly airport announced yesterday were lifted and those for Charles de Gaulle were reduced from a 30 percent cut in traffic, the Direction Generale de l’Aviation Civile wrote in an e-mailed statement today.

“The DGAC has decided to ease the restrictions on the Paris airports,” the authority said. ‘These new measures will allow certain airlines to reprogram some flights.’’

Aviation authority advised travelers to contact their airline. Weather office Meteo France has issued an orange alert for the Paris region today, the second-highest level, with a forecast of 1 to 5 centimeters (0.4-2 inches) of snow that may make transportation difficult.
