High winds affecting travel in northern Europe

High winds across parts of the UK and northern Europe will affect some short-haul and domestic flights today Thursday, 2nd March.

Due to the poor weather forecast, it has been agreed between Heathrow Airport, National Air Traffic Services (NATS) and airlines using the airport, that the number of overall flights in the schedule will be reduced.

For safety reasons NATS has to allow greater space between landing aircraft in high winds and this has resulted in a reduced number of aircraft being allowed to land each hour at Heathrow.

Please contact your dedicated Travel Executive for any further information regarding this matter.
