Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA) experienced significant disruptions due to the impact of Storm Isha. The storm brought strong winds, leading to a Met Office amber weather warning for wind across much of the country, including the Bradford district.

Flight Cancellations

Several flights were cancelled due to the adverse weather conditions. Specifically, the 1:55 pm KLM flight to Amsterdam and the 3:15 pm Aer Lingus flight to Dublin were cancelled. The 3:50 pm Ryanair flight to Alicante was delayed until nearly 10:30 pm. The 7:15 pm Aer Lingus flight to Belfast and the 8:25 pm Aer Lingus flight to Dublin were also cancelled. Some flights arriving at LBA were cancelled as well, including the 6:45 pm Aer Lingus flight from Belfast and the 7:55 pm Aer Lingus flight from Dublin.

Advice to Travellers

Travellers were advised to check their flight status before travelling. The disruptions caused by Storm Isha have led to significant changes in flight schedules, and passengers were urged to stay updated to avoid any inconvenience.

Broader Impact of Storm Isha

Storm Isha has not only affected flights but also caused disruptions in other modes of transport across the UK. Trains, flights, and ferries were cancelled as warnings kicked in. The Met Office has extended its amber wind warnings to cover most of the UK as Storm Isha approaches. A meteorologist has warned that the winds could pose a danger to life in some areas.

The storm is mounting a “twin attack”, with some parts of the UK seeing heavy rain. There could well be localised flooding when up to 40mm of rain combines with hard ground and snow melt in Scotland, and high river levels in England and Wales.

In conclusion, Storm Isha has caused significant disruptions across the UK, with Leeds Bradford Airport being one of the many affected areas. As the situation continues to develop, travellers are advised to stay updated on the latest news and changes to their travel plans.
