Heathrow Airport has said about 15% of its schedule will be altered on Monday throughout Queen Elizabeth’s state funeral.

This is to make sure the skies over London fall quiet in the course of the occasions, it said.

There will be flight cancellations in consequence, together with 100 British Airways flights and 4 Virgin Atlantic flights.

Separately tens of 1000’s of passengers are set to be affected by a French air visitors management strike on Friday.

Among the cancelled flights will be many who fly over France, not simply to and from the country.

Heathrow disruption

Heathrow said that every one takeoffs and landings on Monday will be delayed for quarter-hour earlier than and after the two-minute silence at the tip of the funeral.

Following that, there will be no arrivals between 13:45 BST and 14:20 BST in the course of the procession of the hearse, and no departures between 15:03 BST and 16:45 for the ceremonial procession by way of the Long Walk to Windsor Castle.

Between 16:45 BST and 21:00 BST, departures will be diminished to assist the committal service at St George’s Chapel.

Flights will even be diverted around Windsor Castle “to minimise noise during the private family service and interment”, it said.

n a statement, Heathrow apologised for the inconvenience however said that “as a mark of respect, operations to and from the airport will be subject to appropriate changes in order to avoid noise disruption at certain locations at specific times on Monday”.

The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has issued steerage which implies that air passengers whose flights are cancelled or badly delayed on Monday due to Heathrow’s modifications will not legally be entitled to monetary compensation. That is as a result of these are probably to be deemed extraordinary circumstances.
