Flights were suspended from taking off and landing at Stansted Airport from 6am to 8.20am as the runway was closed due to heavy snow, a spokesman said.
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.
Passengers are advised to check with their airline before they travel and are urged to take extra time to get to the airport as the roads surrounding the area are "treacherous".
