Dublin airport to close due to weather!

Dublin Airport announced that all flights will be cancelled from 3pm today due to Storm Emma.

Airlines Ryanair and Aer Lingus won’t resume flights until Saturday morning.

The airport said that it is unlikely that any flights will operate on Friday.

Dublin Airport tweeted: "Airlines suspending flight operations Dublin Airport from 3-4pm today due to impact of Storm Emma.

“AerLingus and Ryanair resuming flights on SAT am. Unlikely to be any flights tomorrow.”

The airport’s website said: "Given the Red Weather Alert for later today and tomorrow, it is unlikely that other airlines will operate to or from Dublin Airport on Friday and they are likely to resume operations on Saturday morning.

"We will have snow crews working today and tomorrow to continue to clear the runway, taxiways, aircraft parking stands and apron areas for our airline customers’ planned resumption of services on Saturday morning.

Meanwhile, people across Ireland have been warned to stay indoors this evening with heavy snow, gale force winds and extreme cold weather expected.

Many areas across the country have already ground to a halt with fears that the worst is yet to come.

All of Ireland is under a severe Status Red weather warning and there has been widespread travel chaos.

Many public transport services have stopped, flights have been cancelled and some roads are in a treacherous condition.

Storm Emma is set to make landfall this afternoon and collide with the chilly Siberian air from the so-called ‘Beast from the East’.


What do strong winds mean in IF? Correct, T&Gs! :D


Yeah the British Isles are covered in snow. I live there and its chaos. Thousands of schools shut and seveal people dead due to the cold weather!

This is the same for most airports now.
Bristol Airport has cancelled all flights. There is a red alert so there is a risk to life so it’s expected that flights are being cancelled.


Just to give your guys an idea of the storm.

Yeah it’s crazy. It’s like a mini blizzard.
