British Airways is not the only airline to cancel flights due to Storm Eunice’s disruption.

Loganair has also canceled more than 30 domestic flights including routes from Manchester, Aberdeen, Liverpool and the Isle of Man.

The airline released a statement on its website in which it said it would contact all affected customers and release the full list of its canceled flights, adding that if a passenger’s flights are not on the list, they will operate as normal, although warning passengers to continue to check flight status before arriving at the airport.

Other airlines including TUI and Jet2 have also warned passengers that their flight schedules may be disrupted.

TUI released a statement last night that read: “We are aware of Cyclone Eunice hitting the UK tomorrow 18 February 2022. We are monitoring the situation closely and will advise guests. Customers are advised to allow additional journey time to the airport in case of any disruption to road and rail networks.Customers can check the status of their flight from the TUI website or its homepage. their departure airport.”

Meanwhile, a number of flights from Birmingham Airport have been canceled to destinations including Dublin, Paris, Amsterdam, Munich and Frankfurt, as reported by BirminghamMail.

If you are traveling and your flight is delayed by more than two hours, your airline is legally obligated to provide you with two free phone calls/emails/fax, meals and refreshments , and also offers free hotel accommodation if you’re required to stay overnight.

Unfortunately, you’re unlikely to receive compensation for a delayed or canceled flight, as airlines don’t have to pay when cancellations are caused by inclement weather.

Some airlines may offer refunds and rebookings – if you’re traveling, check the status of your flight before heading to the airport.
