The One Thing Airport Snow Removal Teams Need This Winter (And Every Winter)

Featured Image

Anyone who works on an airport's snow removal team knows how critical it is for every step to go smoothly. With each passing minute, you risk further cancelled or delayed flights, safety issues, and a well choreographed response gone awry because something—no matter how minor—took a wrong turn and impacted the rest of the line.

The title of this Wired article from 2016 put it best: "It Takes Crazy Effort to Clear Snow From Airport Runways."

Fortunately, we've come a long way since then. 

Snow removal teams, meet SnowBOSS
