UK airline British Airways cancelled more than 80 short-haul flights as temperatures hit below zero and the forecasts predict heavy snow for large parts of the United Kingdom.
Snow and ice result in flight cancellations
Low temperatures and icy conditions affect not just the UK. Amsterdam Schiphol Airport cancelled dozens of flights today as predicted snow and low temperatures are set to impact traffic. KLM, British Airways, Flybe and easyJet have cancelled flights on short-haul routes ahead of the snow.
