The Transport Secretary Philip Hammond has called for a review as to why the bad weather has had such a major impact on all of the affected UK airports.
He spoke out as Colin Matthews, chief executive of BAA, said he was "truly sorry" for the disruption which has left thousands of passengers stranded due to grounded flights and in danger of missing their Christmas Holiday.
Hammond said "now was not the time" to make decisions on whether more cash should be invested in helping Britain's infrastructure deal with the extreme cold.
Further snowfalls of up to 20cm are expected today, with the South, including London, Wales and the Midlands, due to see another substantial covering.
