Storm Ciara has passed over the UK and Ireland, leaving a trail of damage behind it. With some of that damage, there are delays and diversions today.
UK Wearther Warnings as of 10:30GMT – https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/warnings-and-advice/uk-warnings#?date=2020-02-10
The European and UK Domestic programme is still hit, with passengers given the opportunity to re-book.
FlyBe is attempting to run a normal flying programme and passengers should check-in as normal. However, to allow for flexibility, the airline is allowing rebooking
A number of services have been cancelled. Passengers should already be informed by email and text message what their options are.
Ciara gets a new name as she crosses Central Europe – enter Storm Sabine. Ensure your details are up to date in the manage my booking tool to ensure you get the latest information about your flight.
Oh, and if you’re thinking of swapping your air ticket for a rail ticket for German Domestic travel, DB is experiencing delays and cancellations too.
Be prepared for diversions and service changes as needed. Some aircraft and airlines are still diverting because of the storm, so aircraft and crews may be in the wrong place if they need to run a service. I’ve noticed a few diversions this morning due to the weather – and they could well continue into the day.
There is disruption all over the UK Rail Network map, with Network Rail now assessing the repairs needed to the railway following damage caused by the storm.

Conditions have calmed down a lot since yesterday, but it will take some time for things to settle down and return to a sense of normality. Before you set out, please ensure you flight or train is running.
There’s a running commentary on BBC News which is worth a look – but if you travel, please allow extra time for your journey.
