An updated list of affected departures and arrivals at airports including Edinburgh, Gatwick, and Heathrow as Met Office issues weather warnings

Strikes, air traffic control staff sicknesses, and a technical meltdown caused chaos across airports last year cancelling and delaying hundreds of flights. Over the August bank holiday a technical fault by National Air Traffic Services (Nats) led to hundreds of flights being cancelled. And today stormy weather - which has seen Met Office warnings - is taking its toll.

According to the Daily Mail, senior aviation sources claim up to 650,000 people were caught up by delays and cancellations because of problems at Nats. At the start of October due to short notice staff sickness at the tower at Gatwick Airport, Nats imposed a 800-flight limit, reducing the rate of arrivals and departures.

Today (Friday 1 March) there is more travel disruption due to weather warnings issued by the Met Office. The forecaster has issued a yellow weather warning for wind which ends at 8am this morning, covering the Sussex coast up to just before Hastings.

The weather service said: “Strong winds will move east across coastal areas of southwest and southern England this morning leading to some disruption.” It is causing flight delays and cancellations, with Heathrow Airport in particular seeing many flights delayed.

A yellow weather warning for rain has also been issued staying in place until 3pm today, covering southwest England and most of Wales. Around 10 to 15 mm of rainfall is likely, with perhaps 30 mm in a few locations. A total of 111 flood alerts are in place for potential flooding.
