Snow and ice are cancelling flights from several London area airports today.
London’s Stansted Airport reports that travelers should expect flight delays and cancellations due to the adverse weather conditions. London’s Luton Airport reports that the airport remains open and the runway is operational; however, some airlines have cancelled or delayed flights in order to allow for time to de-ice the aircraft.
In all cases, travelers should allow for extra travel time to and from the airport and check with their airline for the status of their flight before leaving for the airport.
