Ryanair CANCELS all flights from four major United Kingdom airports

Flights were grounded from 6PM on Thursday evening until the early hours of Friday, with the airport operating at around 31 per cent frequency.

And Aer Lingus said there will also be disruptions to flights at Dublin Airport.

A spokesperson for Ryanair said tonight: "Ryanair now plans to return to operations at all Irish airports on Saturday, 3rd March while remaining in close contact with the airports and the emergency authorities".

According to The Weather Channel, the storm system is expected to bring damaging winds, heavy rain, snow and severe flooding from the Carolinas to ME, with wind gusts ranging from 40-60 miles per hours in some areas.

"We recognise the uncertainty that the bad weather may be causing customers and have therefore introduced a range of flexible rebooking options for customers flying to or from London Heathrow, London Gatwick or London City airports".

Although a status red weather warning reamains in place in some counties, Ryanair say they plan to run all flights tomorrow provided there is no change in the weather conditions. And today the United Kingdom has been hit by a second front called Storm Emma.

Yesterday many of Scotland's airports cancelled flights and suspended services, though some flights have been arriving into Edinburgh airport today.

At least 300 jobs could be lost because of the move and it could means passenger numbers fall by 500,000.
