With forecasts of snow to come, the French aviation authority reported that Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport was ordered to cut their flights by 20% on Sunday. Fortunately, snowfall is now expected to be less severe than previously thought, so according to Direction Generale de l’Aviation Civile, flight cuts at Charles de Gaulle were reduced from 30% and flights at Paris Orly were set to operate on a normal schedule.
Although the restrictions at the airports have been eased, authorities are still urging passengers who are flying out to check with their airlines prior to making their way to the airport. Meteo France, the weather office, issued an Orange Alert for the Paris region, meaning they expect a snowfall of 1-5 cm (0.42 inches). This is the second highest level alert possible and that amount of snow will make transportation in the region difficult.
