1. Check with your airline first – don’t assume flight cancellationEven if it’s looking unlikely that flights won’t take off, be sure to contact your airline to confirm whether or not your flight will be operational. Most airlines will post updates on their websites or offer phone advice. 2. Allow extra time to get to the airportIf your flight is still scheduled to operate, be sure to leave even earlier than you normally would to make it to the airport on time. If you’re driving, consider switching to winter tyres, check the forecast and road conditions, ensure your mobile is fully charged, and have a shovel, sleeping bag, extra clothes, and some food and water in the car – just in case.3. Check TwitterThis is where many airlines will update their flight status first, but also where you can check up on instant news and information shared by other travellers. Search using relevant hashtags where appropriate, e.g. #gatwick, #edinburgh or #uksnow which will also help you find out if travel to and from the airport is blocked due to bad weather.Helpful Links for Travel UpdatesBAA – status on all BAA operated airportsFCO – help and advice for British Nationals stranded overseasCAA – UK civil aviation authority adviceTravel insurance guide 10ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map RelatedWhat to do if your flight is cancelled or delayedThe recent bad weather is causing travel misery up and down the country.
