A number of flights to and from Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA) have been hit by delays, diversions and cancellations on Christmas Eve.

The Met Office issued a yellow warning for strong, very gusty winds on Christmas Eve. 

With forecasts predicting 50mph wind gusts, the warning will remain in place from 8am to 10pm on Sunday, December 24.

A yellow weather warning means there could be disruption to journeys, damage to buildings, injuries from debris, power cuts, and fallen trees. 

It is the second time this week that departures and arrivals have been affected by windy weather.

Storm Pia brought wide-spread disruption to the Yeadon-based airport on Thursday.

The windy weather isn't affecting all flights from LBA - this could be dependent on your flight's planned route, destination, staffing, issues with landing elsewhere, and other factors.

Flights to Malaga, Las Palmas, Faro, and Arecife appear to be departing as normal.

Aer Lingus cancelled its 8.50am flight from LBA to Belfast City. Customers were directed to gate one for more information. 

KLM has cancelled its flight to Amsterdam at 1.55pm. Affected travellers should contact their airline for guidance on the next steps.

This could be due to a KLM flight from Amsterdam being cancelled. It was originally due to land at LBA around 1.25pm, according to LBA's website.

A flight from Dublin was due to land at LBA around 8.25am, but this was diverted to Liverpool.

Meanwhile a flight from Alicante to LBA is expected to land 35 minutes earlier.
