Current disruption in travelling to UK airports


How the situation may affect your travel plans

A severe weather warning has been issued for the UK. According to the government Met Office, parts of the UK may experience up to 30mm of rainfall and up to 90mph winds. It is likely that this will cause disruptions to flights and transport services throughout the UK.

Land's End Airport is closed due to a waterlogged airfield - all flights are being diverted to Newquay airport.

London Gatwick and London Heathrow airports are experiencing significant delays as well as cancellations of flights to and from Ireland, Europe and the Channel Islands.

We suggest contacting your airline to confirm your flight is departing as planned and leaving plenty of time to get to the airport.

Trains across the country have also been affected. You can find more information about trains here.

We will update this page as more information becomes available.
