Heathrow to cancel 30% of flights this weekend
February 4th, 2012 by elisa

The weather warning from the Met Office has prompted Heathrow Airport to cancel 30% of its flights for this Sunday. Heavy snowfall is expected in the southeast of England this weekend, so a reduced timetable is being agreed in order to minimise disruption to passengers. Check the new schedule from 18:00hrs today, which could have further additions as the weather changes.

There is likely to be poor visibility and freezing fog from 18:00 hrs on Sunday, with as much as 15cm of snow covering the whole of the southeast.

Heathrow chief operating office Normand Boivin, said: “This decision ensures that the greatest number of passengers can fly with the minimum amount of disruption. It also means that those passengers whose flights are cancelled will know in advance, and can make alternative arrangements or rebook in relative comfort.”

Gatwick Airport is also warning of possible disruptions to schedules on Sunday, and will update on their Twitter feed (@Gatwick_Airport).

Details of flight cancellations will be published by British Airways later today, and Virgin Atlantic are offering passengers to option of  re-booking travel for next week.
