Thick fog is disrupting flights across the UK for a second day with 45 flights cancelled at Heathrow.

Other affected airports include Gatwick, Stansted, London City, Manchester, Birmingham, Belfast Leeds Bradford, Glasgow and Cardiff.

British Airways urged passengers not to travel to their departure airport unless they have a confirmed booking on a flight that is operating.

“Continuing heavy fog across southern England will cause flight disruption at many UK airports, including Heathrow and Gatwick, on Monday,” BA said.

“At Heathrow, the airport authorities and air traffic control have again requested airlines to reduce their schedules on Monday to maintain safety.”

EasyJet was among airlines suffering delays and cancelled flights due to bad weather across Europe.

The airline said: “Please be aware that we continue to suffer from major network disruption today due to poor weather conditions throughout Europe causing low visibility. 

“This has resulted in a large number of aircraft and crew out of place for flights today.

“In addition we are seeing a lot of air traffic control restrictions which has resulted in some delays, diversions and cancellations.”

“We are continuing to review the situation and would like to reassure passengers that we are doing everything possible to minimise the disruption.”

Heathrow said: “ Following yesterday’s heavy fog, the Met Office has issued another warning for today.

"If you are due to travel today we advise that you check the status of your flight with your airline before travelling to the airport as there may be some disruption to flights.”
