Weathering the Storm in Memphis

Glen Thomas, Director of Strategic Marketing & Communications/PIO for Memphis International Airport shared a quick recap of how the airport responded to the winter weather that blew through Thursday morning, February 11th. “Runways are open, and flights are arriving and departing,” noted Thomas. Crews deployed de-icing chemicals on the runways overnight and monitored them to ensure that ice did not accumulate. “We have temperature sensors on the airfield that allow us to be aware of any problem areas.”
