A third said: "Landed over an hour ago at T5 and still haven't got off the plane."

The cancellations come after temperatures dropped as low as -8C, resulting in dangerous fog across the runways.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning, explaining why it affects airlines.

The website states: "Fog, snow, ice and crosswinds mean that air traffic controllers have to increase the gap between planes that are landing, reducing the number of aircraft that an airport can manage.

"The same weather can make it slower and more difficult for the planes to taxi between runway and terminal building."

It comes after around 70 BA flights were cancelled yesterday due to the weather as well.

A British Airways spokesperson said: “Like other airlines, our schedule has been affected by the continued freezing fog weather conditions experienced across London.

“We’ve apologised to customers whose flights have been affected and are doing everything we can to get them on their way as quickly as possible.

A Heathrow spokesperson also said: “Poor visibility is forecast this morning at the airport and across the South East.

"While there may be minor changes to today’s schedule as a result of the weather, we want to reassure passengers that our colleagues are working in close collaboration with our airline and air traffic control partners to get them safely away on their journeys as quickly as possible."
