Heathrow Airport may be willing to pay you £435 per day during the holiday season, as they are in desperate need of workers.

Because they are so short on staff, Heathrow Airport is offering up to £435 per day as a Christmas bonus.

A “Snow Clearance Specialist” is needed at the busy airport to prevent flights from being delayed or cancelled due to inclement weather.

The role, which was revealed by job website Adzuna, included some of the most glamorous jobs for those looking for extra cash over the holidays.

“The most lucrative winter position is for Snow Clearance Specialists, who are responsible for keeping aircraft stands and walkways safe at airports so that they can continue to operate during inclement weather,” they wrote.

“At locations including Heathrow Airport, roles pay up to £435 per day.”

During snowy weather, anyone interested in the job is likely to be clearing the airport runways and walkways.

To explain why planes struggle to land in the snow, Sun Online Travel spoke with Andrew Ward, a Met Office meteorologist who works at Heathrow.

“The way the UK suffers when it snows is due to the type of snow we get,” Andrew said.

“There are two types of snow: dry and wet,” says the narrator.

Canada has dry snow that does not stick around for long and can easily be blown away.”

“But we have wet snow in the UK, with a lot more moisture in it, and that’s what causes disruptions,” Andrew continued.

“Wet snow is more of a problem because it turns to slush and ice, which is more difficult to clear than dry snow, which can be blown or swept away easily.”

“It makes it more difficult to keep the airport running smoothly because there are more ice hazards and aircraft require de-icing.”

And, despite the fact that it seems like it happens frequently, he claims that snow events in the UK are rare, and they come as a shock when they do.

If you want to avoid the snow during the holidays, here are the best places to go that are still warm in December and January.
