Bulgaria: The Airport in Brussels is Temporarily Shut Down Because of the Heavy Snowfall Source: Twitter

Brussels Airport Zaventem stopped working today because of heavy snowfall. No take-off and landing of planes are currently in service, the airport said, BNT reports. 

It is expected that the flights will be resumed after the cleansing of the platform and the slopes. Strong snow has fallen over Belgium since yesterday and has been the cause of the delay of many flights. This morning, the take-off of many machines was delayed, and arrivals were waiting in the sky or being redirected to other airports.

Road services report today that a new record of congestion in the country - over 1,000 kilometers. Although the snow cover is only about two centimeters long and melts, the road maintenance services fail to cope.
