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

The runway at Luton Airport was closed for about an hour this morning and there have been delays to some flights, a spokesman for the airport said.

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.

– David roach, spokesman for London Luton Aiport

Passengers are advised to check with their airline and the airport's website before they travel.
