Flight cancellation update - Heathrow, Stansted
Sunday 18, April 2010
Flights are cancelled at all BAA airports until 19:00, Monday 19 April at the earliest. This is due to volcanic ash spreading across the UK from Iceland which has caused restrictions to be placed on the use of UK airspace by the air traffic control service (NATS).
The cloud of volcanic ash continues to cover much of the UK. Following a review of the latest Met Office information, NATS – the air traffic control service – has confirmed that air traffic restrictions will remain in place in airspace above the UK until 19.00 (UK time) on Monday 19 April, at the earliest.
Passengers due to fly should not travel to BAA airports (Heathrow, Stansted, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Naples, Aberdeen, Southampton) but should contact their airline.
BAA airports will continue to update this site with the latest information available.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
