There are currently significant delays to airline bus services from Oxford.

This comes after a crash earlier on Wednesday afternoon on the M40 which has closed all southbound lanes.

These remain closed at the time of writing while traffic is flowing past the scene on the hard shoulder.

This has affected the timing of Oxford’s fleet of airline buses headed to the country’s airports leading to Oxford Bus Company warning travellers.

A spokesperson for the company said: “Due to a major incident near the Lewknor Turn, our Airline services are operating with a significant delay of up to 60 minutes.

“We apologise for the inconvenience caused and appreciate your patience during this time.”

This comes after the Oxford airline buses had already been diverted due to heavy traffic in the city in recent weeks.
