Jet2 has issued a holiday warning to British tourists who could see disruption to flights from “stormy conditions”.

An airline spokesperson said: “Our operations team continue to monitor the UK forecast to ensure we have the most up to date information for all Jet2.com departing and arriving customers on Friday, April 5, Saturday, April 6 and Sunday, April 7.

“The Met Office has warned that the stormy conditions are due to continue, at times, in parts of the UK for the coming days.

“If you are travelling with Jet2.com we plan to operate our flights as close to schedule as possible, however, there may be some disruption should the weather deteriorate.”

The airline said it advised all customers to check in as scheduled and that airport staff would be available to assist passengers.

Jet2 said it would be in contact with any passengers who are directly affected via SMS or email.

It added: “We will, where possible, board all flights for an on-time departure, however, please be prepared for a longer than normal wait either in the terminal or onboard the aircraft to depart.”

Passengers can check their individual flight information on the Jet2.com website, which will be updated throughout the day.

Ryanair also issued a warning of “potential disruption” due to high winds and said affected passengers would be notified.

Weather warnings have been issued across parts of the UK with Storm Kathleen expected to bring “strong winds to Ireland and much of the UK on Saturday”.

Deputy chief meteorologist Christoph Almond said: “Gusts of 50 mph are expected quite widely on Saturday, while some exposed spots, particularly on the coast, will see 60 to 70 mph gusts with large waves also likely.”
