Dublin airport suspends flights in cold weather
DUBLIN Jan 1 (Reuters) - All flights to and from Dublin were suspended on Friday after heavy snowfall on New Year's Eve which also disrupted bus and rail services in the Irish capital.
"We hope to resume operations at 1030 (GMT)," a spokeswoman for Dublin Airport said.
Dublin is the home base of Ryanair, Europe's biggest low-cost airline, and former state carrier Aer Lingus.
The airport's website showed some flights due as late as 1500 GMT have been cancelled.
Dublin Bus said on its website that no local bus services would be operating on Friday until further notice due to the harsh weather and Irish Rail also reported disruptions at major stations. (Reporting by Andras Gergely; Editing by Charles Dick)
