It's one of our busiest times of the day, the first wave of flights. Obviously there will be a knock-on effect but at the moment we are just concentrating on getting things back to normal.

Runway at Luton 'closed for an hour' due to snow

The runway was de-iced and has now re-opened but passengers are warned that there could be further delays to flights as a "knock-on effect".

We had to close the runway for about an hour this morning as a precautionary measure. I think the snow took everyone by surprise this morning.

There have been a couple of delays this morning and we expect there to be a knock-on effect just as we get the service back up and running.
