British Airways cancels flights as ‘Beast from the East’ hits UK | Travel News | Travel

British Airways has cancelled at least 36 flights from Heathrow Airport today thanks to the ‘Beast from the East’ 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 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.

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 has been assured for tomorrow for parts of the UK with up to 15cm of snow predicted.
