A passenger rests on the floor, after heavy snow closed the runway cancelling flights, at Gatwick Airport in southern England on December 01, 2010. Britain's transport links with the rest of the world were disrupted by the early winter snowfall as key airports closed Wednesday and international Eurostar train services were cut. London Gatwick Airport, Europe's eighth busiest passenger air hub, was closed until at least 6:00 am (0600 GMT) Thursday as staff worked on clearing the two runways. TOPSHOTS/AFP PHOTO / CARL COURT
