Aer Lingus flights disrupted by severe US snowstorms

Several Aer Lingus flights have been disrupted by severe snowstorms on the east coast of the United States in the past 24 hours.

Aer Lingus said today that it had been forced to cancel its 6pm flight from New York as the plane was diverted to Montreal last night and would only be arriving at JFK Airport later today.

It also said other flights from both New York and Boston would be delayed for several hours today.

Yesterday, three Aer Lingus flights also suffered delays of up to five hours due to blizzards and snowdrifts along the US east coast.

A snowfall record was set in New York last night, with almost 30 inches measured in the city's Central Park.
