Both Aer Lingus and Ryanair have apologized for the ongoing disruption and passengers have been advised to check their flight status online.

It comes after 143 flights scheduled to depart or land were canceled yesterday.

Passengers planning to travel over the weekend are advised to check with their airline before heading to Dublin Airport.

Thousands of passengers had their flights canceled and many more faced hours of delays at the airport on Friday as airlines struggled to de-ice their planes.

In a statement released this morning, airport operator DAA said the impact of yesterday’s disruption is causing more cancellations and delays today.

“Dublin Airport is fully open and operational again today (Saturday). However, a number of flights have been canceled as a result of the problems airlines faced yesterday. Passengers are advised to check with their airline for the latest information about their flight,” a spokesman said.

“All surfaces at the airport – runways, aprons, etc. – were treated preventively during the night. DAA teams were on site overnight in the terminals to help passengers who wanted to rebook their flights that were canceled from Friday, and provided water, etc. to those waiting at airline counters.

On Friday afternoon, Met Éireann issued a Status Yellow frost fog warning for the whole country, with visibility severely limited until Saturday noon.

Visibility is very poor where this freezing fog occurs, making driving conditions “very dangerous”.

Ice fog is even more dangerous than regular fog because the droplets can become supercooled and form as ice on windshields.

Temperatures dropped to -1.3C at Dublin Airport overnight.

Met Éireann’s Gerry Murphy said Ireland is now “really just at the beginning of a very cold spell” and people need to be aware of the forecast as conditions could get dangerous.

There is likely to be a ‘cumulative’ effect of several sub-zero days and nights, resulting in temperatures becoming progressively lower, while hail, sleet and snow are likely to continue to fall on coastal areas in the coming days.

There will be widespread severe freezes into the weekend, with Met Éireann now predicting this cold snap will continue throughout next week.

Counties experiencing wintry showers may see snow build up on the ground in the coming days as the cumulative effect of ever-declining “temperatures” makes conditions more treacherous.

Temperatures are expected to drop to as low as -4C in places overnight through Saturday.

Meanwhile, the temperature at the airport dropped to -3C on Thursday night, while a thick blanket of snow also fell.

Among the passengers affected by yesterday’s disruption was John O’Reilly, 29, from Clondalkin, south Dublin, who told Independent.ie he and his friends were on a Ryanair flight from the airport at 7.20am on Friday morning Dublin should fly to Barcelona.

The group arrived at the airport at 4am and quickly went through security.

“We boarded at 7:10 a.m., but nothing happened,” Mr. O’Reilly said. “Then we were told the plane had an icing problem and it would take an hour. Then the pilot said every hour for three or four hours that it would be another hour.

“We were on the runway for four hours on the plane. And people were really hungry and thirsty.

“At 12:30 we finally got off the plane. We are now running around the airport trying to catch another flight.

“We’re stressed. We’re playing a card game tournament in Barcelona and we missed the first day. And the tickets cost €220 each. There are four of us here at Dublin Airport affected by this.

“We wanted to meet a friend from England over in Barcelona. Now they are alone over there.”

Despite his experience, Mr O’Reilly said he didn’t blame Ryanair staff and felt they were doing their best in a difficult situation.

On Friday, Ryanair said: “Due to heavy ice overnight a small number of Ryanair flights have been delayed/cancelled from Dublin Airport this morning.

“Affected customers have been notified and informed of their options. We sincerely apologize to the impacted customers for these weather related delays/cancellations which are completely beyond our control.”
