Flying in the snow is perfectly safe, as long as you follow the rules and guidelines of your airline. Before you book your flight, make sure that your airline offers flights to your destination. You may be surprised by which airlines offer service to snowy destinations. In addition, check with your airline to see if they are operating on a schedule or if they have canceled their flights altogether.
When traveling to cold climates during the winter months, you should consult with your doctor about any medications that may affect your ability to travel. Some medications, such as aspirin and ibuprofen can cause bleeding and bruising when taken at high altitudes, which can be dangerous if an emergency landing is necessary. If you are taking any kind of blood thinning medication or have any other medical condition that could be affected by air travel in cold weather, it is best to consult with a doctor before booking your flight.
The airport itself may also have restrictions on flying during inclement weather conditions such as heavy snowfall or ice storms. If an airport has been closed due to hazardous conditions, it will not be safe for aircrafts to land there until those conditions improve because of safety concerns for both passengers and crew members alike.
