With more bad weather due to hit parts of the UK this week and warnings issued by the Met Office, commuters and holidaymakers are facing the prospect of travel disruption.

It is likely that the wintry weather will affect a number of airports too causing delays and possible cancellations.

Fight comparison website Skyscanner has launched a new dedicated departure and arrival boards page so travellers can see the latest status on their flight.

The departure and arrival boards page covers all major airports from Aberdeen to Gatwick to Glasgow.

Hayley Shearer, Growth Manager from Skyscanner said: “With heavy snow predicted to fall over parts of the UK this week we advise all travellers flying out of the UK to check their flight status before leaving home.

"We have a dedicated departure boards page on our site for UK airports, which is updated in real time to give the latest status of flight departures and arrivals.”

She added: “If your flight is cancelled an airline is legally obliged to provide a refund or alternative travel within 7 days.

“However, in order for travellers to claim compensation for inconvenience it must be the airline at fault, therefore extraordinary circumstances such as snow will not automatically entitle travellers to claim.

"Travellers will need to check whether they are entitled to claim for compensation with the individual airline.”
