The airline has advised customers affected by these cancellations to visit its website aerlingus.com where they can change their flights to another date of travel, free of charge. “Customers who wish to cancel their travel plans will receive a full refund and are asked to use the refund request facility on aerlingus.com,” a spokesman said. “Aer Lingus apologises to all customers affected by these cancellations.”

The airline said it was planning to operate all other services tomorrow, but would let customers know via text message, the website and the media, should this situation change.
