It looks as though things are quickly returning to normal at Pearson International following that dangerous cold snap.

As of 5 a.m. on Thursday, there were 18 arrivals and 18 departures cancelled which is less than 2 percent of the daily flights.

Airlines have been calling in reinforcements to help cope with the massive backlog of passengers that have been delayed due to the weather.

The CEO of the Greater Toronto Airports Authority, Howard Eng was away on a business trip when his company ordered a level 2 ground stop, halting all inbound North American flights for more than 8 hours on Tuesday.  Eng will return Thursday to get the results of a review of the shutdown decision, however, the Airports Authority says that review will not be made public.

U-S airlines are getting back to normal after the cold forced them to cancel another 800 flights on Wednesday, and thousands over the past few days.

    We have had extended periods of -20 to -30 temperatures in the past and I don't recall the airport being shut down. What was so different this time around?
