Several flights in and out of NI cancelled

Birmingham Airport has been ground to a halt

It has reportedly cancelled 24 long-haul flights as well as dozens of shorter flights. The airport was packed as passengers backed up waiting for news of flights.

Passengers, airlines and airports across the United Kingdom all suffered major flight cancellations and delays yesterday, after snow and freezing conditions gripped the United Kingdom in one of the worst snap freezes to hit the country in the last four years.

A snowstorm that pushed across London on Sunday (Dec 10) brought Heathrow Airport, one of the busiest in the world, to a virtual halt as airlines canceled numerous flights and planes were stranded at gates.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and we are working hard to ensure that services can resume as soon as possible.

"We're very sorry that some of our customers" travel plans have been affected by heavy snowfall being experienced across the United Kingdom and Europe, ' a British Airways spokesman said.

London Heathrow airport is warning travellers to be wary of delays and cancellations, with British Airways telling travelers via its Twitter feed they can claim a refund or rebook their journey, rather than flying on December 11 or 12. Like other airlines, we are experiencing some delays and cancellations.

A spokesman for Glasgow Airport said there were 17 cancellations in total: "We're open and fully operational, however, we've experienced a number of cancellations".

A spokeswoman for Heathrow Airport said: "Heathrow airport remains open however we regret that weather across the United Kingdom is resulting in some passengers experiencing disruption to their travel arrangements".

Delays from flights out of Britain may impact on services later today.

"Heavy snowfall: do not come to the airport until further notice", the airport said on Twitter, adding that passengers should check the status of their flights.

"We are very sorry for the difficulties caused by the poor weather".
