Yesterday many of Scotland's airports cancelled flights and suspended services, though some flights have been arriving into Edinburgh airport today.

A spokesman said the extreme conditions over the last three days have seen the airport experience record levels of snow.

But the airport warns that the situation "is likely to remain challenging and there will be disruption".

"We will have snow crews working today and tomorrow to continue to clear the runway, taxiways, aircraft parking stands and apron areas for our airline customers' planned resumption of services on Saturday morning".

Stormy and snowy weather conditions have caused more than 360 flights to be cancelled across the country from a range of airlines including British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and Lufthansa.

"Gatwick has transformed itself into a world-leading airport and there's plenty more to come".

Hundreds of flights have been cancelled at New Jersey, Philly and NY airports due to a powerful nor'easter making its way through the area packing wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour and heavy rain.

They have since said that they too expected further cancellations today and tomorrow.

And East Midlands Airport has also had to shut until at least this afternoon.
