London Stansted Airport – Flight Disruption Due To Thunderstorms

Following the hottest day of the year so far in the UK, storms have hit the South East overnight causing the airport to close this morning due to a power cut. The Met Office in the UK has also issued a yellow warning, due to “surface water flooding”.

Stansted airport has now re-opened but scheduled airline flights are experiencing delays of up to several hours.

Other London airports may also experience some Air Traffic delays due to aircraft diversions.

Private jets are available at short notice from alternative London airports including London Luton Airport, RAF Northolt Airport, London City Airport, London Biggin Hill Airport, and London Farnborough airport.

For private jet prices and availability call our team on +44 (0) 1747 642 777 (24 hours).
