Heathrow operating 'near-full service'

Wed, 04 Feb, 2009

Flight schedules at Heathrow Airport are returning to normal following chaos during yesterday's (February 2nd) snowy winter weather.

According to a bulletin on the airport's website, while drivers are still encouraged to leave extra time for their journey and to contact their airline directly about any delays, both runways are now open and airlines are working to ensure that disruption is as minimal as possible.

British Airways, which yesterday suspended all of its flights to and from Heathrow for several hours, announced that by February 4th, it intends to operate the "vast majority" of flights into and out of Heathrow Airport.

It said that despite operational difficulties on Monday and today, it anticipates that all travellers who are booked on a British Airways flight out of Heathrow will be able to leave as planned.

However, the airline cautioned that all passengers should make sure to check their flight status before leaving for the airport.
