Lesley Offley from Surrey was due to fly to Austria with her family to celebrate her husband’s 60th birthday.
The 62-year old woman told the BBC that “We’ve spent all morning unravelling all our travel plans for my husband’s 60th birthday – first time we’ve attempted to travel since 2019 – and I’m completely fed up.
“It’s been phone calls and emails all day, accommodation is lot more money so we’ve lost out there and we’re still trying sort out the travel insurance.
“We’ve re-booked for next week but I don’t feel confident at all.”
People heading to the Alps to ski have been advised to contact their airline to check the current situation.
