Snow continues to disrupt United Kingdom airports

Snow continues to disrupt United Kingdom airports

Multiple easyJet flights have been cancelled at Luton Airport and dozens of schools are closing early ahead of heavy snowfall expected later today. Edinburgh Airport says that it will close from 6 p.m. local time this evening, although Lufthansa, Jet2, Qatar Airways, Brussels Airlines, Etihad Airways and Loganair are planning to run full operations in advance of that closure.

A Shannon Airport spokeswoman said: "While Dublin Airport reopened just before 0800hrs some of these flights have yet to depart Shannon to resume their journeys". We advise passengers to take care when travelling both to and at the airport and to check their flight status with their airline before coming to the airport.

A spokeswoman for the airline said: "Due to the adverse weather that is being experienced and forecasted over the next few days with the potential to impact travel across large parts of the United Kingdom, airports may either close temporarily or restrict the number of arriving and departing flights".

"Due to continuing adverse weather conditions, Ryanair expects further flight delays and cancellations at airports today and tomorrow".

WINTER weather across the north of Europe is hitting flights hard in both the United Kingdom and Spain.

Ryanair has announced it will be scrapping its Aberdeen-Malaga flights for the winter season starting in November 2018.

All planes are arriving at JLA as scheduled, except previously cancelled flights from the Isle of Man and Dublin. Guests who were booked to travel Wednesday can rebook on the next available flight, free of charge.
