Aberdeen flights cancelled due to weather

By mid-morning on March 1 Glasgow Airport had said there will be no arrivals or departures before 15:00 local time. Flight operations will NOT resume until Saturday morning, meaning there will be no flights to or from Dublin Airport tomorrow.

The website claims to have "all the live, accurate flight information you need" from airports around the UK.

"In light of this and the impact it is having on passengers and staff, including airline staff, travelling to and from the airport we will remain closed for the rest of the day".

A statement from Heathrow Airport says: "Extreme wintry conditions are expected across the United Kingdom and Europe today".

Aer Lingus and Ryanair have announced that all flights in and out of Ireland after 3pm today are cancelled until Saturday.

More than 200 flights, mainly short-haul services, have been cancelled at Heathrow while about 50 of Gatwick's departures were also axed.

At Leeds Bradford airport Flybe and Ryanair have each cancelled eight flights. The weather in Scotland has been particularly harsh by United Kingdom standards.

"We recognise the uncertainty that the bad weather may be causing customers and have therefore introduced a range of flexible rebooking options for customers flying to or from London Heathrow, London Gatwick or London City airports", it said.

The airport had been closed all day yesterday but reopened this morning after staff worked from 4am today to clear the runway of snow.

Because the disruption is caused by adverse weather, passengers whose flights are cancelled or heavily delayed are not entitled to cash compensation but the airline has a duty of care towards passengers affected.

All Aer Lingus and Ryanair flights will be grounded this afternoon.
