Stansted airport is open as usual, but we advise passengers check with their airlines to ensure their flights are still running before setting off for the airport.
During a spell of wintry weather, check the airport's website before setting off and, if in doubt, call your airline to check your flight. Motorists are urged to take the utmost care on the roads and to allow plenty of time to get to the airport.
