QUEENSLAND WEATHER UPDATE: MAJOR AIRPORTS STILL IN BUSINESS DESPITE CANCELLATIONS AND DELAYS

DESPITE the storms and flash floods which are continuing to wreak havoc across several Queensland cities and towns, the state's major airports are still in in business.

Brisbane and Gold Coast airports are still operating, though a number of scheduled departures, arrivals and airline services have been cancelled due to extreme weather conditions in the wake of ex-cyclone Debbie.

In a post to Facebook, Brisbane Airport has confirmed its services are continuing throughout the day, however it warns that flights may be delayed or cancelled.

Domestic services that have already been cancelled include flights arriving in Brisbane from Gladstone and Mackay, in addition to flights outbound to Hamilton Island and Adelaide. Several other flights have been listed as delayed.

Brisbane Airport has urged people who are travelling today to check the arrivals and departures list regularly for any updates.

Similarly, Gold Coast airport has issued a statement that its services will continue for the time being, however all flights operated by Tigerair and Virgin Australia have been cancelled, with the exception of Virgin's inbound and outbound services to Auckland.

The Gold Coast Airport will be posting updates on social media, and it has encouraged all passengers flying with other airlines to keep an eye on their flight's status.
