TULSA, Oklahoma – February 1, 2022 – The Tulsa International Airport team is monitoring weather conditions, and snow crews are prepared for impending winter weather. Airport maintenance crews have equipment on standby and are ready to treat the airport’s runways and roadways as needed.
The airport is responsible for clearing snow and ice from the airport runways, taxiways, and roadways, and each airline is responsible for deicing and preparing their aircraft.
After a snow or ice storm begins, the goal is to make the roadways and runways safe as soon as possible. These resources are available to attain this goal:
- Snow equipment includes 7 snow plows, 5 snow brooms, and 2 snow blowers.
- Snow crews on are standby 24 hours a day when there is potential for a winter storm. They typically begin their shift 3-4 hours prior to when the storm would hit, and end 3-4 hours after the snow is supposed to clear.
- When the first flake falls or first sign of winter weather begins, crews are starting to prepare.
Passengers using Tulsa International Airport (TUL) may experience delays or cancellations. Regardless of weather, the airport terminal building will remain open. Departing passengers and those picking up passengers for arriving flights are encouraged to confirm with their airline the status of the flight before leaving for the airport.
