Disruptions on 28 Jan due to snowfall and wind at Helsinki Airport

Challenging snow and wind conditions are expected to cause limitations to traffic and slow down other operations, like de-icing the aircraft, at Helsinki Airport on 28 Jan. Delays are expected, and we have cancelled some flights to ensure as smooth as possible operations throughout the afternoon.
