Travel clear up continues as weather warnings remain

Travel clear up continues as weather warnings remain

In Easter Ross, police said the Nigg, Fearn, Balintore, Portmahomack, Tain and Eddertson areas were closed off due to the adverse weather conditions, which are causing snowdrifts.

Both flights were lucky to not have been cancelled as dozens across the United Kingdom were halted due to snowy or icy conditions and high wind speeds.

"We are keeping customers informed and offering those due to travel to destinations in the United Kingdom or Europe this week the opportunity to postpone their journey".

A red weather warning issued for Wales and the southwest of England led to Flybe cancelling its flights from Exeter and Cardiff while easyJet axed its ervices from Bristol.

Yesterday many of Scotland's airports cancelled flights and suspended services, though some flights have been arriving into Edinburgh airport today.

These cancellations follow on from travel mayhem yesterday with 2000 flights cancelled across Europe in total.

That figure dipped to a 68 per cent cancellation rate today after one in two flights out of the Scottish capital were not allowed to take off on Wednesday.

Hundreds of schools up and down the country will remain closed, including in Glasgow, South Lanarkshire, East Lothian, West Lothian and Edinburgh.

However, bosses have announced that the final departure today will be at 20:50.

Our teams have been clearing snow throughout the night and as a result Heathrow's runways are open and fully operational.

"Further heavy snowfall is forecast and we will provide updates regarding tomorrow's scheduled services later this evening".

Dublin Airport is suspending all flights until Saturday morning.

"We are planning for flight operations to resume first thing tomorrow morning".

The unsafe flying conditions have also caused the popular budget airline easyJet to cancel further flights.
