Heavy snowfall caused Bergen Airport to close temporarily and flights to be cancelled on Tuesday morning. Just before 9am, flights began to take off from the airport again.

On Tuesday morning, nine departures from Bergen Airport, Flesland, were cancelled and flights were groudned till just before 9am, due to heavy snowfall.

Following the disruption, travellers had been told to arrive at the airport as they usually would and stay updated with the latest information from the airline they are flying with. 

The airport resumed flights at just before 9am and allowed passengers to board flights after 8am. However, delays and runway closures are to be expected throughout the day. 

"Flesland is up and running again, after being closed in the morning hours due to heavy snow. Some delays must be expected. Passengers are asked to meet as normal and refer to information about their journey from their airline. The runway will close for short periods throughout the day for plowing," Avinor writes on its website. 

Avinor, which operates Norway’s airports, said work was underway at Bergen airport to clear as much snow as it could. Snow has also caused delays in Helicopter traffic to and from the North Sea also. 

Airline Norwegian told TV 2 it was working as quickly as it could to rebook customers affected by flight cancellations.
