An airport spokesman said: "Bristol Airport remains open this morning but snow across Europe and the United Kingdom has caused disruption to a number of flights". All passengers should check with their airline before travelling to the airport.

Sixty easyJet flights to and from Bristol airport have been cancelled as severe weather moves southwest, grounding around 10,000 passengers - many of them at overseas airports.

The airport tweeted from its official Twitter page this afternoon.

"We have reviewed our service position for the rest of the day, assessing current road conditions with the predicted weather reports".

Edinburgh Airport said at lunchtime that it had flown 31% of its schedule on Friday.

Flights are expected to resume on Saturday morning.

New 'risk to life' red warning for south-west and Wales
The areas affected by snow will vary from day to day and so will the areas at the risk of major impacts. An amber warning will still remain in place is some parts of Monmouthshire as previously reported.

Airport maintenance crews, who have been working flat-out, to keep the runways, taxiways and parking stands clear, closed the main runway just after 7pm last night in the hope of clearing it of snow.

Further Ryanair flights have been cancelled today, all flights to and from Dublin, Cork, Kerry and Shannon Airport have been cancelled.

"We recognise the uncertainty that the bad weather may be causing customers and have therefore introduced a range of flexible rebooking options for customers flying to or from London Heathrow, London Gatwick or London City airports".

A statement read: "Today remains challenging and there will be disruption".

More specifically Edinburgh says that Jet2 will commence operations at 0900, Flybe at 1000, Easyjet at 1200, Ryanair at 1300, and British Airways "late morning".
