Hundreds of flights across Europe have been cancelled because of the severe weather.

In the UK, British Airways scrapped more than 60 short haul flights either departing or arriving from London Heathrow.

Airports in Rome, Stockholm and Bergen have also suffered significant disruption.

Meanwhile, Dublin Airport gave an update on their Twitter account.

They said it was “too early to tell” what impact the bad weather may have on operations.

They added that, if travelling later this week, people should check with their airline closer to their flight time.

The Irish Travel Agents Association (ITAA) has also issued advice to Irish holidaymakers.

Cormac Meehan, President of the ITAA said, “Irish holidaymakers that are planning to travel over the next few days are naturally very concerned. We are not sure what the results of this storm will be yet but the Irish travel trade is working together to monitor the situation on a daily basis and to support holidaymakers if their plans need to be changed.”

“Our advice to Irish holidaymakers travelling in the coming days is to keep in close contact with their travel provider or airline to establish if their holiday itineraries or flights are affected. They should also monitor news and weather reports and follow the advice of their local authority before travelling to airports.”

The ITAA represents Ireland’s travel Industry, bringing together 100 travel agent members and 70 affiliate partners. ITAA members cover over 140 outlets in different towns and cities throughout the Republic of Ireland.
