Gatwick Airport, Britain's second-largest airport and the busiest single-runway airport, was closed again on Thursday because of heavy snow. The airport was first closed on Wednesday, along with three others across Europe, according to CNN.

Hundreds of passengers remain stranded at the airport with flights canceled through at least 6 AM on Friday.

CNN reports that the airport released a statement reading: "We are doing everything we can to resume operations. Our teams are working around the clock to make the runway safe for aircraft to use and get our passengers flying again."

On Thursday, airport officials passed out blankets, food and water to stranded passengers at the airport. WATCH coverage below:
