Four services in total – three between Glasgow and Heathrow, and another from the city to Stornoway – have been affected by the weather, as have others between Aberdeen, Durham and Sumburgh.

Easyjet has confirmed two flights between Edinburgh Airport and Munich have been cancelled due to “snowy conditions”.

A spokeswoman for Aberdeen International Airport said flights between the Granite City and Heathrow had been “advanced cancelled”.

BA and Edinburgh Airport have both been approached for comment.

An Easyjet spokesman said: “Like other airlines easyJet is experiencing some disruption to its programme today as a result of snowy weather conditions. As a result We have had to cancel two flights to and from Edinburgh.

“We are doing everything possible to minimise the disruption for our customers including providing hotel rooms and meals for those passengers affected by the cancellations.

“Customers on the cancelled flights have been provided the option of transferring their flight free of charge or obtaining a refund.

“The safety of our passengers and crew is easyJet’s highest priority. Whilst this situation is outside of our control we would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused as a result of the weather.

“We would strongly advise that all passengers due to fly with us over the next 48 hours check the status of their flights on its Flight Tracker page at for real-time information before going to the airport.”

A statement on BA’s website said adverse weather would be behind many flight cancellations from Monday, February 26 until Friday, March 2.

It stated: “We are expecting adverse weather conditions across parts of the UK and Europe from Monday 26 February to Friday 2 March and at various times of the week it is likely to affect some of our short-haul and domestic flights.

“We recognise the uncertainty that the bad weather may be causing customers and have therefore introduced more flexible re-booking options for all customers on short-haul flights flying to/from London Heathrow or London Gatwick airports.

“If you are due to travel on a short-haul service between Monday 26 February and Friday 2 March (inclusive), regardless of whether your flight is currently showing as operating or not, you can re-book your flight to a later date and travel on dates up to including Wednesday 21 March. All re-bookings are subject to availability.”
