The statement from Flybe is as follows:
As a result of adverse and resultant atmospheric weather conditions impacting normal operations due to Storm Ophelia today, Flybe has been forced to cancel some 170 flights, the full list of which is available at www.flybe.com/flight-info
This included all flights to and from Belfast City Airport, Scotland and the Channel Islands and the majority of its flights to and from Southampton this afternoon and evening.
The safety of its passengers and crew is Flybe’s number one priority and the airline will, as always, do everything possible to minimise any disruption.
