Turkey started the week with a heavy snow storm all over the country and mostly effected was of course the big city, Istanbul. Even schools are closed because of the snow continuing for three days.
What should passengers do in order to avoid long waiting hours or returns from airports and other travelling stations? Let us have a look:
Follow the Weather Conditions Closely
Meteorology studies and reports the weather estimations weeks ago. Please check up the weather both in your area and where you are planning to travel to. The weather conditions where the traveler takes off might be suitable but always keep in mind that most of the time the weather of the point of arrival has a more active role. For weather estimations:
When you book or buy your ticket, make sure to give your updated mobile phone number and request a short message notification about your flight details and any changes. Then you are going to be alerted hours ago upon a cancellation.
Follow Social Media Closely
Accounts in the social media of your airline helps in many ways. These are the platforms where mostly cancellations are announced the first thing. Try especially twitter accounts.
