Public transport will halt as people are urged to stay

Any passengers whose flights have been cancelled should not come to the airport.

Unsurprisingly, terrestrial transportation has been plunged into chaos and the most intensive winter operations have kicked in at almost every airport.

Staff at the airport have been trying to source camp beds and blankets through agencies like the Civil Defence. Travelers on cancelled flights can claim a full refund if they no longer wish to travel.

Management at Cork Airport is urging passengers to contact their airlines before leaving for the airport.

"Our Dublin short-haul flight schedule on Saturday will be disrupted with early morning flights cancelled and most operations not commencing until after 10am", it says.

An airport spokesperson said: "Due to the continued and extreme weather conditions we have had to extend the suspension of all services until 1pm".

Schools and colleges across the country will remain closed for a second day, and commuters are also facing further disruptions.

"We are doing everything we can to reaccommodate customers and we apologise for any inconvenience caused by these disruptions which are entirely outside of our control".

Jet 2 has tweeted, "We are now advising travel as normal, and would notify our customers should there be any updates".

It said: "Our teams are working hard clearing snow from the runway, aircraft operating areas, vehicle parks and roadways on-site".

These cancellations follow on from travel mayhem yesterday with 2000 flights cancelled across Europe in total.

At Durham Tees Valley Airport, meanwhile, the flights to Amsterdam scheduled for 10.10am and 4.40pm have been cancelled.

"We are working with the airlines tonight to understand what the morning looks like so please check with them before you travel to the airport".

"Our location means that we have an excellent weather record and we play an important role whenever other airports are closed".

RYANAIR has revealed it's hoping to get all Irish flights off the ground from tomorrow morning.
