Weather hits Glasgow airport flights

31.01.06

Passengers faced 2 hour delays at Glasgow Airport yesterday, after several flights were grounded by freezing fog. One flight from Bristol had to be redirected to Prestwick Airport because visibility was so poor.

Six early-morning flights from Glasgow were hit, including an Aer Lingus plane to Dublin and a connecting flight to New York. This flight eventually took off almost two hours late as sub-zero temperatures continued to grip the west of Scotland. Other flights affected were a holiday flight to Las Palmas, as well as business flights to Birmingham, Belfast and Nottingham East Midlands.

A spokesman for Glasgow airport operator BAA said: 'The delays are a direct result of the freezing fog. We have extensive supplies of de-icer which we've used to ensure the runways are safe but it's up to each airline to de-ice the planes. Visibility was extremely poor and the decisions to delay flights have been taken in the interests of passenger safety.'

Schedules started to get back to normal late yesterday morning.
