Birmingham Airport has also closed its airfield as a result of the snow, and has not given any indication as to when passengers can expect it to reopen.

This follows the cancellation of more than 160 flights at Heathrow Airport yesterday and more than 60 today, which is said to translate into between 13,000 to 15,000 passengers. The deicing process is believed to have affected both outgoing and incoming flights, with planes not able to land because other aircraft were still in the stands.

London's Heathrow airport said dozens of flights had been scrapped, reports Efe news.

Aberdeen flights from Bristol, Heathrow and Amsterdam have also been cancelled.

Flights from Birmingham and London Luton have been cancelled into Ireland West Airport (Knock) and Dublin Airport. Five flights have left the Castle Donington base today, the last one being the 7:43am to Fuerteventura. Six morning flights from Glasgow and Edinburgh have been cancelled.

"We're very sorry that some of our customers' travel plans have been affected by severe adverse weather conditions", a British Airways representative told The Independent.

In Britain, heavy snowfall is causing widespread disruption. "Like other airlines, we are experiencing some delays and cancellations".

"We're asking customers to check for information about their flights on before they set off for the airport, and not to come to the airport unless their flight is operating".
