Severe weather delays and cancels flights

Weather system drives across Northern Europe

Extremely windy and wet weather continues to batter the UK, affecting airports – and now this weather system is driving across Scandinavia. Most affected so far have been airports in Scotland, with Edinburgh airport closed to inbound flights yesterday with departing flights being assessed on an individual basis. The situation there has resulted in heavy delays and many cancellations.
Heathrow, Gatwick and Glasgow airports have also experienced cancellations and delays and ferry crossings have been diverted. Passengers in Scandinavia are advised to contact airports and other travel hubs for the latest information.
