Dubai airline Emirates cancelled one of its flights to London Heathrow on Sunday morning due to Storm Ciara.
Passengers booked on flight EK029 from Dubai to Heathrow will be rebooked on alternate flights, the airline said.
“Due to expected severe weather conditions in London this flight has been cancelled. We are in the process of rebooking the flights to final destination and will send updated itinerary shortly,” the airline said on its website.
Dozens of airlines have cancelled flights to London due to weather disruptions caused by the approaching storm.
“Like all airlines operating in to and out of the UK, we are expecting to be impacted by the adverse weather conditions across parts of the UK on Sunday 9th February,” British Airways said on its website.
“We are sorry for the potential disruption to your travel plans and are doing all we can to minimise the effect the poor weather may have on our flights. We recognise the uncertainty that the bad weather may be causing customers, and have therefore introduced flexible rebooking options for all customers on domestic and European flights flying to/from London Heathrow, London Gatwick and London City on Sunday,” it added.
The Met department in the UK has warned of severe winds and rains.
