FOLLOWING the cancellation of a number of flights this morning due to the weather conditions, Aer Lingus has issued a statement informing all passengers of changes to their services.
All passengers due to fly in the next 48 hours are being permitted to change their flights to a later date subject to availability.
Their full statement is as follows:
Severe winter weather conditions in Ireland are causing disruption to our schedule today, Wednesday 28th and a number of flights have been cancelled as a result, with the possibility of further cancellations and delays throughout today.
Guests who have bookings to travel on Aer Lingus flights from Wednesday 28th February to Friday 2nd March and who wish to postpone their travel to a later date, within 7 days of their original travel date, may also rebook free-of-charge using our online facilities.
We will update guests via this website, SMS messaging and our social media channels of any new developments. We apologise for the inconvenience caused to our guests, which is due to circumstances beyond our control, and are doing everything possible to minimise disruption to their travel plans.
