Monday 11 December: After heavy snow followed by rain at the weekend, customers travelling in and out of London’s Heathrow Airport (LHR) can expect further delays. The airport is struggling with a backlog of flights as planes need to be de-iced before take-off, and the delays mean there are not enough parking spots for incoming aircraft. A number of services have been diverted to other airports.
Birmingham Airport (BHX), Luton Airport (LTN) and Gatwick Airport (LGW) have also been affected and around 50,000 British Airways (BA) customers have been impacted by the weather event.
For further information please contact your airline directly, or call our 24/7 customer service team for emergency global assistance on +61 7 3170 7845.
