flights postponed from Glasgow

British Airways cancelled all domestic flights at Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen until 2 pm due to the knock-on effect of snow at other airports.

BA and Easyjet have postponed their flights from Glasgow and several other airports after several days of snow and ice bought Britain to a standstill.

A spokesman for Easyjet explained that the airports are amongst several closed due to the “knock-on effect” of the extreme weather recently.

The airline has grounded all flights from Luton since 11:30am this morning and some have been cancelled from Glasgow.

Flights are expected to resume from Glasgow at 12 pm.

Low fog was causing visibility issues on the runway in Aberdeen and the bad weather elsewhere has added to delays and cancellations.

A spokesman for Aberdeen Airport also urged passengers to contact their airline before arriving at the Dyce terminal.

Passengers have been advised to contact their airlines or check their websites for further information. Easyjet has also set up a Twitter feed to give the latest news.

The groundings come after many other days of airport closures across Europe, which have included Bristol, Inverness, Gatwick and Luton.

The Highlands and Aberdeenshire were worst hit as blizzards continued overnight and in the morning.

Freezing fog and icy conditions continued to take their toll on commuters today.

Police forces across Scotland have advised drivers to take care in the wintry conditions and, where the weather is worst, not to leave home.

Snow on the A90 at Marykirk between Aberdeen and Dundee lead to long delays as several lorries had become stuck overnight.
