Check your flights - Storm Ophelia could cause disruption

Check your flights - Storm Ophelia could cause disruption”

Ireland has been feeling the brunt of the storm and three people are reported to have died in the treacherous winds.

The statement reads: "A number of flights to and from Dublin Airport have been cancelled tomorrow due to the expected impact of Hurricane Ophelia".

But some passengers travelling on planes fearless enough to tackle today's storm have been in for more than a bumpy ride.

A video posted to Twitter on Monday captured category 2 winds from the storm named Ophelia rattling and shaking a commercial aircraft as it landed at Dublin Airport on Monday.

As it heads over the wire fence and makes for the runway, the plane starts to tip dangerously to its left hand-side.

Sean Hassett watched flight EI491 land this afternoon.

Pilots, including those at the control of this Aer Lingus Airbus A321 from Faro landing at Dublin, have been facing strong crosswinds.

Both Ryanair and Easy Jet cancelled flights at Belfast International Airport, with more cancellations expected.

OPTIMISM is being expressed that the backlog of flights at Shannon caused by today's weather is about to ease.

Flights in Ireland and parts of the United Kingdom have been badly hit by remnants of Hurricane Ophelia.

A British Airways spokeswoman said the carrier has had "some reports of smells on board" but the aircraft continued to their destinations.

Donegal passengers intending to fly tomorrow through Irish airports are being advised to check their travel arrangements.
