Snow continues to impact airports

Thu, 05 Feb, 2009

Snowy conditions are continuing to hold up air travel at airports.

Birmingham International Airport is open but the runway will be closed periodically in order to clear it, the BBC reported.

According to the Birmingham Mail, seven flights were cancelled and two flights coming in to the airport had to be diverted.

The airport itself says that it has been affected by heavy snowfall and that, while open, some flights are delayed.

Passengers are advised to use the airport website's flight information facility or check with airlines to find out about the current state of affairs.

The BBC also reported that Inverness Airport has reopened but that the A9 road between the city and Aviemore had been closed due to the snow.

Wick Airport was also closed but has reopened.

A number of flights at Heathrow Airport in north London have been cancelled or delayed over the past few days due to the weather conditions.
