2 March update:

  • British Airways has cancelled over 100 flights from Heathrow Airport today
  • The airline has been affected by the weather the worst with over 200 cancellations since Monday

British Airways has cancelled another 100 flights from Heathrow Airport today thanks to Storm Emma rolling into the UK.

The freezing weather is coming from Russia and the Siberian blast could cause the temperature to drop to -15c in some parts of the UK.

Despite spring officially starting on March 1, experts have warned that the cold snap and snow could last until the middle of March.

Travellers are being warned that further flights could be cancelled as the weather continues to affect the UK.

Update 2 March:

The airline is allowing passengers to rebook regardless of whether their flights are cancelled: “There continues to be very poor weather conditions across parts of the UK and Europe and at various times of the week it will affect some of our flights.

“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.

“If you are due to travel on any short haul service up to and including Sunday 4 March, regardless of whether your flight is currently showing as operating or not, you can rebook your flight to a later date and travel on dates up to and including Wednesday 21 March.

“In addition, if you are due to travel on a long haul service to or from London Heathrow up to and including Sunday 4 March, regardless of whether your flight is currently showing as operating or not, you can rebook your flight to a later date and travel on dates up to and including Wednesday 21 March.

“If you have some flexibility in when you can travel, we would strongly encourage you to take advantage of these extra options.”

Flights from Heathrow Airport that have been cancelled include the UK, Europe as well as New York and Los Angeles.

A statement on the British Airways websites states: “We are sorry that the weather is likely to lead to some delays and disruption to our schedules.

“We have proactively cancelled some services and will be re-booking customers on to alternative flights or offering them a full refund if they no longer wish to travel.

“We are sorry for the disruption to your travel plans and are doing all we can to minimise the effect the poor weather is having on flights.”

They have warned passengers who have had their flights cancelled to “not travel to the airport”.

Current report from the Met Office has also advised that there is a "potential risk to life" thanks to the plummeting temperatures.

An amber alert remains for the UK.
