Flights across various UK airports were delayed or cancelled as heavy snowfall prompted by an Arctic blast caused disruptions.

Heathrow, Gatwick and London City were among the airports whose aircraft movement was hit with the cold snap, according to Express news.

UK’s Met Office has issued a warning that the condition could get even worse as it expects more snowfall.

Arrivals board of Gatwick Airport showed that the majority of the flights were delayed or cancelled due to snow.

Heathrow, which is said to be one of the biggest international airports in the country, has also cancelled nearly 25 arrival flights, according to the news publication.

Besides, flight disruptions were reported at Bristol Airport, with the airport authorities warning passengers of delays due to the yellow weather warning across the South West region, The Independent reported.

In a statement posted on its Twitter account, the airport said: “The Bristol Airport teams are working hard on snow clearing operations, but as the snow continues to fall, flight operations have been suspended until 1100.

“Passengers are advised to contact their airline for specific flight information prior to travelling to the airport and please take extra care.
