Aberdeen’s Airport Getting Backup De-icer

ABERDEEN – Aberdeen Regional Airport will be getting backup de-icing equipment next week.

The Aberdeen American News reports that failure of a de-icing truck caused interruptions in Delta Airlines flight service in early February.

The airport is now getting a tower de-icer, which can do the job when the truck is unavailable but at a slower pace.

Ice must be removed from the commercial planes when conditions dictate. In February, Delta flights coming in from Minneapolis were canceled due to overnight conditions that might have caused icing over of the planes when no de-icing equipment was available.

Aberdeen Airport Board member Steve Kaiser says the board was upset about having to interrupt service.

In another change, all airport staffers will undergo weather observation training in July.
