Storm Doris cancels British Airways UK domestic flights

Strong winds forecast for London Heathrow prompt safety measures and a reduced flow of aircraft landing at the airport 

British Airways has cancelled five roundtrips, including one between Edinburgh and London Heathrow, from today’s operation due to forecasted strong winds.
The affected flights are:

BA1476 LHR 08:55, GLA 10:25 BA1483 GLA 11:10, LHR 12:40

BA1448 LHR 14:10, EDI 15:35 BA1455 EDI 16:15, LHR 17:40

The cancellations are due to high winds and stormy conditions – otherwise dubbed ‘Storm Doris’ – forecast for the UK over the next few days.
Scotland and the north of England are predicted to be the worse affected by the storm, which is flowing in from the Atlantic.
From today (Wednesday, 22 February), strong winds are forecast for London Heathrow – prompting a reduced flow of aircraft landing at the airport.
British Airways, which has apologised for the disruption, says passengers – where possible – will be booked on to the next available flight.
