Flight cancellation update - Heathrow, Stansted

Flight cancellation update - Heathrow, Stansted


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.
