Some 20 European airports, plus all airlines, are warning passengers that poor visibility due to heavy fog in the UK and continental Europe is causing cancellations and delays for the second day in a row, with the disruption expected to continue throughout today (Monday 2nd November).
Heathrow Airport alone saw more than 90 flights cancelled yesterday and another 20 again early this morning, while other UK and European airports are also reporting cancellations and severe delays due to continuing foggy conditions.
The UK Meteorological Office has issued a yellow alert warning, as Air Traffic Controllers at Heathrow Airport in particular have issued requests that airlines reduce today’s schedules to maintain safety.
So far, those airports that have reported disruption include the following: Aberdeen; Amsterdam; Belfast; Bristol; Brussels; Cardiff; Frankfurt; Gatwick; Geneva; Glasgow; Hamburg; Leeds Bradford; London City; London Gatwick; London Heathrow; Madrid; Manchester; Milan; Paris Charles de Gaulle; and Zürich.
These poor visibility conditions are expected to continue until mid-afternoon for some eastern parts of England and southern Scotland.
We (GTM) always recommend that all air travellers check in online for their flight and ensure that either we, or your airline, has your mobile/cell phone number and email address in order to help with alerts and notifications.
