Last Updated: Saturday, February 4, 2012 - 21:33

London: The owner of Heathrow Airport says it
has cancelled 30 percent of flights for Sunday amid forecasts
for snow and severe weather in London.

BAA says it reached an agreement with Heathrow airlines
and air traffic control to reduce the flight schedule for
Sunday to "minimize the disruption to passengers" caused by
the heavy snowfall expected to fall at the airport starting
later Saturday.

Britain`s Met Office has issued a severe weather warning
and forecasters are predicting up to 15 centimeters (about 6
inches) of snow.

BAA said a revised schedule showing which flights will
operate on Sunday will be posted online at around 2330 IST
today.
