Manchester Airport - Weather Conditions
been difficult weather conditions across Europe and in the USA this
week and Manchester Airport has issued this release to the press for
all passengers from heading to and from the Airport. "As a
result of the difficult weather, passengers are experiencing delays
and cancellations across the transport network. This is likely to
continue during the run over Christmas 2009. Manchester Airport
staff have continuing to clear the runway, stand areas and taxiways
of snow to keep the airport open after snow falls. We have got extra
staff in over the festive period to assist both in the terminals and
on the airfield and the airport is prepared and able to tackle
further snowfall. We are continuing to clear the backlog in
conjunction with our airlines, to get our passengers to where they
need to be over Christmas. Passengers who are travelling over the
next few days should also continue to check the websites of their
airlines for changes to the schedule. The airport website is now
displaying essential data only, such as live flight information
arrivals and departures. We hope that way it will be is able to
handle the additional traffic from passengers looking for
information on their flights. We are ncouraging passengers to check
with their airlines or tour operators before they travel to get the
most up-to-date information over the Christmas and New Year period.

Letter to the Editor:- "Action stations"
Reporter, A little while ago we issued the attached news release
about the £3.25bn we intend spending on providing better facilities
at stations throughout the country over the next five years. We
wanted to hear from rail users what they would like to see improved
at their station. We have had a good response - but we want more.
Your readers/listeners/viewers can win an annual rail season ticket
simply by taking part in our on-line survey and because many people
renew their tickets in the New Year, now is a good time to enter -
but entries close on 31 December 2009. Have a happy Christmas and
peaceful New Year." Regards, K Lumley (networkrail.co.uk}.
