Irish flights to London cancelled after freezing fog hits UK

Irish flights to London cancelled after freezing fog hits UK”

As of 9.30am, approximately 30 flights have been cancelled.

Thick fog has severely hampered visibility around City Airport for the third day in a row.

Care and assistance means the airline must provide passengers with meals and refreshments and if necessary it would also have to cover the cost of hotel accommodation and transport between the hotel and the airport.

Thick fog caused a third day of travel misery for air passengers with dozens of flights out of London's major airports cancelled or delayed.

If you're taking advantage of the Christmas break to venture to sunnier (or snowier) climes, beware: fog is affecting flights into and out of Heathrow airport.

United Nations settlements vote 'biased and shameful': Netanyahu
Of the 15 nations represented on the UNSC, 14 supported the resolution , no votes opposing, and the United States abstaining. Israel's United Nations ambassador, Danny Danon, reacted to the decision by criticizing the Obama administration.

Earlier a spokesman for Heathrow Airport said: "Heathrow is still in heavy fog, which is expected to continue into the afternoon".

On Friday morning, Met meteorologist Emma Sillitoe said: "The main thing we have had is large, dense freezing fog patches".

Visibility dropped to less than 100 metres on the airfield, leading to lengthy delays to practically all other departing planes. BIAL sources admitted this could be possibly the highest number of flights disrupted due to fog in 2016.

Spokesman Ian Crowder said on Thursday: "We have got the worst possible conditions really, of fog and icy roads, and that can be lethal".
