Exeter Airport reopened to passengers this morning following yesterday’s flash flood when it was forced to cancel multiple flights.

The main terminal was flooded due to heavy rain, causing bosses to close the airport while teams mopped away the water.

It reopened early this morning, with most flights today operating on time.

However, Aurigny flights to and from Guernsey this morning have been delayed until this afternoon, and an Aer Lingus/British Airways flight from Dublin was cancelled.

In a statement online, the airport said: “We are pleased to confirm that the airport is open today, thanks to the hard work and determination of airports staff who worked through the night to clean up after yesterday’s flash floods.

“We look forward to welcoming passengers as usual.”
