More than 250 Flights Cancelled at Heathrow Due to 2 cm of Snow

According to London’s Heathrow International Airport, more than 250 flights have been cancelled due to 2 cm of snow and low visibility.  This works out to 20% of their total daily flight schedule of 1,300 flights.  Many airlines have been affected, including British Airlines, Aer Lingus, Air France, Lufthansa, and TAP Portugal.  The forecast for the day is 2-6 cm of snow and low visibility and since the airport is at maximum capacity, they do not have the room to reschedule flights and space them out like other airports can.


Travellers waiting for flights at the airport are angry and frustrated that the forecast for such a small amount of snow has such a significant effect on the flight schedule, especially since this is the third day in a row that flights have been cancelled due to weather.  On Friday, 440 flights were cancelled and another 100 were cancelled on Saturday.  Despite this, Gatwick Airport is operating as normal and the 50 cancellations they have had are the result of disruptions at other airports.
