Istanbul Airport extends closure due to heavy snowfall

Istanbul Airport has halted all flights Tuesday until 1 p.m. local time (10:00 GMT) due to heavy snowfall in the city, according to Anadolu Agency.

“Due to continuing bad weather conditions, there will be no aircraft landing and take-off on the runways of Istanbul Airport, and the closure has been extended until 1 p.m. on Jan. 25,” the head of Turkiye's State Airports Authority, Huseyin Keskin, said on Twitter.

The mega airport was shut to flights until 4 a.m. local time (01:00 GMT) Tuesday after heavy snowfall hit Istanbul, Turkiye’s largest city, on Monday, shuttering shopping malls and disrupting traffic.
