Scotland’s busiest airport plans to temporarily close its airspace on Tuesday to ensure Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin is flown safely to London.

Although the airport will remain open to passengers during this period, the airspace closure will mean some flights will be grounded, delayed or canceled on Tuesday afternoon, the airport confirmed to local media Edinburgh Live.

Edinburgh Airport representatives did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for confirmation.

Scotland’s regional airport, Loganair, has warned travelers that some flights have been rescheduled.

The company said via a Facebook post: “If you are flying with us to or from Edinburgh on Tuesday 13 September, some Loganair flights have been rescheduled or combined due to the late afternoon airport closure for allow HM The Queen’s the last voyage from Scotland to take place.”

The airline also warned passengers traveling to the airport that there will be “several road closures and likely more traffic and congestion than normal”.

The late Queen’s coffin is currently traveling across the UK ahead of her funeral in London on Monday September 19.

On Sunday, the Queen’s coffin traveled by road to Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh from Balmoral Castle where she died on Thursday. He was buried overnight in the palace and will be moved to rest in St. Giles Cathedral on Monday until Tuesday afternoon when he will be flown to London, the Mirror reported.

The coffin is due to land at a Royal Air Force base in London at 6 p.m. He will then travel by hearse to Westminster Hall, where he will remain in state until the funeral, with the public able to view the coffin and pay their respects.
