  • Dublin and Cork airports officially close their doors as Storm Emma beckons

Glasgow Airport has closed following heavy snow in the area. Passengers have been advised to check the status of their flight with their airline before they travel.

"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".

Manchester Airport saw early morning departures to Dublin, Glasgow, London Heathrow, and the Isle of Man cancelled.

"Dublin Airport was operational from 5.20 this morning following snow and ice clearance and its runway remained open throughout the day, apart from a short period for de-icing in the mid-afternoon".

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

Stormy and snowy weather conditions have caused more than 360 flights to be cancelled across the country from a range of airlines including British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and Lufthansa.

In the UK, London City airport has been badly hit with some flights diverted to London Gatwick, Southampton and Birmingham and a flight from Luxembourg returned to its departure airport.

Jet 2 has tweeted, "We are now advising travel as normal, and would notify our customers should there be any updates".

"Our teams are continuing with snow clearing operations, however, we would advise passengers not to travel to the airport".

The airline is reducing its flight schedule for Tuesday, and warns that it is likely it will have to proactively cancel some services and re-book customers on alternative flights.

Other London airports, including Gatwick, have also seen dozens of flights cancelled.

The full list of flight cancellations can be found on the Aer Lingus website.
