The snow is still causing problems for passengers at Heathrow


This morning, it was estimated 200 flights would be cancelled, displacing some 15,000 travellers.

The airport, which is the worst hit in London, is asking people to check before heading to the airport.

A Heathrow spokesperson said:

“Some flights at Heathrow are disrupted today, however the airport remains open and is operating three-quarters of scheduled flights.

Before coming to the airport, passengers must check their flight status with their airline.

If the status of your flight is cancelled, please do not travel to the airport.

The safety and comfort of our passengers is always our first priority and we are working closely with our airlines to ensure affected passengers are looked after.

We apologise to those whose travel has been impacted and regret the inconveniences that have been caused.

Flight cancellations vary from airline to airline based on the location of their aircraft/crews and their ability to de-ice their aircraft.

Knock-on effects from yesterday’s weather lead to the joint decision by airlines, NATS and Heathrow to cancel some flights today in advance.

Heathrow operates at 98% capacity and cancelling flights in advance gives passengers accurate information ahead of time about their flights, helps airlines consolidate flights and introduces gaps in the schedule to ensure remaining scheduled flights can depart with minimal disruption for passengers".
