Travellers have been told to check their fight status amid continuing snowy and icy weather across much of the UK.

Forecasters have said snow will continue until Friday and an amber snow warning has been issued for northern and central England until midday tomorrow.

A yellow weather warning for snow covering much of the rest of the country is currently in place.

An ongoing air traffic control strike in France, which will continue until 7am on Friday morning, is also causing some disruption to short-haul flights travelling over French air space.

Jet2 has told passengers to be prepared for potential weather-related disruption, but said all flights are currently operating as scheduled.

Birmingham Airport told passengers to check for updates on social media and advised people to leave extra time for their journey to the airport.

Yesterday, the airport tweeted: “We’re expecting heavier snow fall from 1800 today (Wed) but, at this stage, we don’t anticipate any major disruption at #BHX.

“We have a full team de-icing the runway throughout today and overnight tonight. They’re ready to clear snow if required.”

Manchester Airport told passengers to take care travelling to the airport and to check with their airline about their flight status.
