“We expect flights to/from Cork, Belfast, Knock to operate as scheduled. This is subject to further updates. We await information on when Shannon is expected to become operational and we will update when this is confirmed.”

The airline is advising all passengers to check the their individual flights before travelling tomorrow.

Elsewhere, Ryanair has cancelled a number of flights for Saturday morning from Dublin Airport.
