Flights cancelled at Britain’s Heathrow airport due to storm

LONDON: Around one in 10 flights may be cancelled at Britain’s biggest airport Heathrow on Tuesday due to stormy weather, an airport spokesman said.

The tail end of Hurricane Gonzalo, which caused damage in Bermuda this week, is set to arrive in Britain on Tuesday bringing gusts of up to 120 kilometres (75 miles) an hour in coastal areas.

“There will be some cancellations, around 10 percent of flights are affected at Heathrow,” a spokesman for the airport said.

“We do not know exactly how many passengers or flights that will have an impact on, although the cancellations are only expected for tomorrow.”

British Airways said it had cancelled a number of flights and advised passengers to check their bookings online.

The met office issued a low level “yellow” weather warning, saying the heavy winds and rain could cause local travel disruption and damage trees.
