Glasgow Airport continues to be affected by the wintry conditions but Loganair is expected to operate a delayed timetable to all island airports.














Flybe’s services to Stornoway are cancelled while Eastern’s plane from Aberdeen is running one hour behind schedule.


Teams from Loganair and Glasgow Airport worked overnight to clear snow off the tarmac with shovels.


The first aircraft in 48 hours - heading to Stornoway - took off three and a half hours late about 10.30am. It will bring travellers stranded in Stornoway back to the mainland.

“We're currently operational, however, there are a large number of delays and cancellations.


“Please check the status of your flight with your airline before travelling to the airport.”
