Normal deliveries and collections should take place in all parts of Scotland today.
On Friday there was some disruption to flights arriving and leaving from Stansted Airport following the closure of the runway. Full details of the flights and the impact on mail services appear below:
Stansted-Edinburgh: This flight arrived late due to the runway closure at Stansted. As a result mail posted in London and the South East on Friday for delivery on Saturday to parts of Central and Southern Scotland may have been delayed.
Edinburgh-Stansted: Although this flight did arrive on time at Stansted there was a delay in unloading the aircraft which was due to a knock-on effect of delays to other flights arrivng late at Stansted due to the runway closure. As a result of this some mail posted in Central and Southern Scotland on Friday for delivery on Saturday in parts of London and the South East may have been delayed.
On Saturday morning the following flights were delayed due to fog: Inverness-Kirkwall (Orkney Islands) and Aberdeen-Sumburgh (Shetland Isles) and as a result may due for delivery on Saturday may have been delayed.
Glasgow Commonwealth Games (23 July-3 August)
The Glasgow Commonwealth Games is the largest sporting event in Scotland for many years. Glasgow will be a busy place during that time as it hosts over a million competitors, officials and fans. We have worked with the Games organisers and the local authorities to ensure that we can maintain normal services during this event and we do not anticipate any major problems. We have created a unique webpage and we will add fresh information to this Service Update page if there is any particular impact on our services during the period.
