Virgin Atlantic cancels flight due to snow weather | Travel News | Travel

Virgin Atlantic has also been affected by the recent bad weather storm plaguing the UK.

Called the ‘Beast from the East’, it has caused problems up and down the country with train delays and flight cancellations.

Many passengers have seen their flights being cancelled due to the dangerous conditions on the tarmac thanks to ice and snow.

The airline has also had to cancel a flight from the UK.

Virgin Atlantic has cancelled a 10:45am flight from Heathrow to Washington.

A spokesperson told The Independent: “This has been cancelled as a result of the inclement weather and we’re currently working to rebook customers affected.”

This is currently the only flight that has been cancelled by the airline.

Their website or social media accounts has yet to be updated with specific information regarding the weather conditions and travel warning.

Virgin Atlantic told Express.co.uk: “We’ve cancelled one flight to Washington today. All customers were rebooked on other airlines.

“This was at the request of Heathrow for all airlines to reduce capacity due to the predicted weather forecast.”

On their flight disruption policy, it states that for flights cancelled within 14 days of departure, a number of options can be given to passengers.

A refund can be chosen, passengers can be rebooked onto the next possible flight, an alternative flight can be chosen with the fare difference refunded or to choose a new destination.

Yet they state that there is no entitlement to compensation if it falls under “extraordinary circumstances” which includes weather conditions.

British Airways has cancelled a further 26 flights today due to the weather.

On Monday 36 flights were cancelled, whilst Tuesday another 42 flights were as well.

The airline has taken the precautionary measure to be able to rebook passengers onto the next flight.

Passengers are warned to check their flight status before travelling to the airport.
