Ryanair has warned of potential delays with travelling from the UK

Ryanair has shared a warning for customers hoping to jet off today as poor weather could impact their flights.

Customers heading to and from the UK with the budget airline could face delays or cancellations and are urged to check the status of their flights.

The disruptions could be caused by "freezing fog", according to the airline, and customers will be told if their flight will be affected. They are also encouraged to keep an eye on the app.

Ryanair states: "Affected passengers will be notified and any passengers travelling to/from the UK on Monday 4 March should check their Ryanair app for the latest updates on their flight.

"We regret any inconvenience caused to passengers by these weather conditions, which are outside of Ryanair's control and affect all airlines operating to/from the UK on Monday 4 March."

Poor weather conditions have been seen across the UK in recent days and the Met Office shared a warning of snow in parts of the UK over the weekend.

This comes as Britons have been told Ryanair flights could be disrupted this summer as the airline changed its schedule.

The airline announced it would cancel flights in the summer of 2024 to tackle severe delays in aircraft deliveries.

Flights on high-frequency routes have been scrapped and more "schedule changes" can be expected in the coming months.

A Ryanair statement said: “Ryanair will now have to reduce approximately 10 aircraft lines of flying for the peak summer months of July, August and September.

“This will cause minor schedule changes in the context of Ryanair’s 600 aircraft fleet and will reduce frequencies on existing routes rather than cutting new routes.”

The airline’s group chief executive Michael O’Leary added: “We are very disappointed at these latest Boeing delivery delays, but we continue to work with Boeing to maximise the number of new B737 aircraft we receive by the end of June, which we can confidently release for sale to the customer during the summer 2024 peak.”

This may also cause basic prices to increase by 10 per cent on last year by the summer.

Mr O’Leary continued: “Fares in summer 2024 are going to be up again in summer 2023. Over average airfares in summer 2023 rose 17 per cent.

“We’re doing our budgets based on a fare increase of five to 10 per cent, which to me feels kind of reasonable.

"It could be higher than that, it could be lower than that, we really don’t know. If capacity was growing, I think fares would be falling.”
