Heathrow Cancels More Flights in Anticipation of Bad Weather

British Airlines has cancelled dozens more flights that were due to head out today, including the first flight of the day to Stockholm and other short-haul flights.  The cancellations were made the evening before in order to give passengers advanced warning and time make other arrangements.  The goal behind the advanced cancellations is to ensure that operations at the airport run smoothly when the bad weather strikes.

 

Chief executive officer of Heathrow, Collin Matthews, sends out an apology to passengers who had to endure the chaos on Friday, when over 400 flights were cancelled with very little notice.  He explained to BBC that because the airport runs at full capacity, any amount of snow is going to cause flight disruptions.  To make a decision on cancellations, the airport, air traffic control, and the airlines sit down together the day before and try to determine what will happen.  There have also been more flights cancelled at Bristol Airport.
