Earlier this afternoon Flybe issued this advice to passengers. We hope you all have a bed for the night if you are stranded in Edinburgh (where better to be stranded?)
Due to the adverse weather that is being experienced and forecasted over the next few days with the potential to impact travel across large parts of the UK, airports may either close temporarily or restrict the number of arriving and departing flights. Flybe, like every airline, has minimum acceptable weather conditions in which we can safely operate. Please be assured that we will be doing our best to ensure that flights operate as normal, taking into consideration any adverse weather conditions. The safety of our passengers and crew remains our number one priority at all times.
Please also be aware that our Contact Centre and Social Media teams are experiencing an extremely high volume of calls and posts due to the widespread travel disruption resulting from the current adverse weather conditions across the UK and much of Europe. Our team is doing everything possible to answer customers quickly as possible. We would like to thank them for their patience and to be assured that their calls will be answered as soon as possible. Alternatively, they might wish to call back at a later time.
