PUBLIC Services minister Paul Luxon says there is nothing more that can be done to cope with extreme weather at the airport.
He praised the efforts being made at the airport to reopen the runway.
‘I can remember Gatwick and Heathrow and other airports being closed in similar weather conditions,’ he said
‘This is a once in a 35-year occurrence for us, due to a combination of snow, the type of snow, high winds – there is no way that an island of 65,000 people can resource itself for a one-off event. The cost would be astronomical and a lot of money would be wasted.’
