Aukland and Waikato Flights Delayed Due to Fog

Thousands of passengers have been left stranded and waiting as thick fog blanketed Aukland and Waikato, causing planes to be grounded.  MetService’s Daniel Corbett said they had the perfect recipe for fog – lots of moisture in the air, clear skies, and light winds overnight.  Despite the fog lifting later in the morning and the backlog is beginning to be cleared, Aukland Airport has still been experiencing major delays well into the afternoon.


A total of 111 international and domestic flights were affected by the fog, including flights that were diverted, rescheduled, or cancelled.  The disruption in flights has occurred during the middle of the school break, disrupting the travel plans of many.  Richard Llewellyn, Aukland Airport senior communication manager, said that he is not sure how much longer they will be experiencing delays, but most of the affected flights were domestic flights as the smaller planes do not have the technology to fly in fog.
