Major airline cancels all flights to and from Ireland on Monday ahead of Hurricane Ophelia
Every major airport in Ireland have told their customers to check with their airline prior to travel.
As the country braces itself for the arrival of Hurricane Ophelia in the early hours of Monday morning - which prompted Met Éireann to hold an emergency meeting on Sunday morning - a major airline has cancelled all of its flights to and from Ireland for Monday.
Dutch airline KLM are offering all customers to rebook or refund their flights on Monday 16 October going to/from Dublin or Belfast. Should you be booked on one of those flights, you can find more information on how to rebook or refund here.
Dublin, Shannon and Cork airports have all tweeted essentially the same message, for passengers to check with their airlines before heading to the airport, as cancellations on Monday are highly likely.
