Moscow airports gradually returned to normal operations with a three-day backlog cleared, Russia’s Federal Air Navigation Authority (Rosaviatsia) said Thursday.
Domodedovo airport served nearly 700 flights, Sheremetyevo served 407 flights and Vnukovo 561 flights for the last 24 hours.
All three Moscow airports have served over 83,000 people in total for the last 24 hours, a Rosaviatsia representative said.
He added that by the end of Thursday 401 inbound and outbound flights have been scheduled in Domodedovo, the worst affected airport which had once been cut off electric supplies for several days.
“We’ll do our best to help people celebrate the New Year where they intend to do so,” a spokeswoman for Domodedovo said.
This week, over 20,000 passengers in total were stranded in different airports in central Russia due to weather conditions.
