MOSCOW, February 9 (RIA Novosti) – Russian airlines Aeroflot and Transaero plan to maintain scheduled flights to New York’s Kennedy Airport on Saturday despite anticipating huge snow falls from snow-storm Nemo, Prime News reported.
Nemo, which hit the northeast United States on Friday evening, is expected to be one of the most powerful in the history of New York. Over 4,700 flights have been cancelled across the United States due to the storm.
“There have been no changes to our timetable,” Aeroflot said, while rival Transaero reported “departure is expected as normal,” for its morning flight tn New York.
Meanwhile, the weather was also making life hard in Moscow, where pedestrians and drivers woke on Saturday to find the city covered in a slippery coat of glass-like ice after freezing rain fell overnight, causing accidents on several main highways into the capital.
