Gatwick Flights Cancelled Due to Fog

More than 1500 flights were diverted from Gatwick Airport to other airports and many other flights were delayed or cancelled when a runway had to be shut down due to fog.  Mayor Boris Johnson said that this situation shows the “extreme fragility” of the airports of London.  He said they are bursting at the seams and they need more runways at airports other than Heathrow.  Heathrow is full and had no room for new routes and business leaders say that this will cause the British economy to miss out on a whopping £100 billion over the next 20 years.


Business travellers do not like Gatwick, Stansted, and Luton and these airports are struggling to support new long-haul routes.  Mayor Johnson wants to see a new airport built in the Thames Estuary, which he believes will solve the problem.  The fog this morning at Gatwick came after a night of maintenance during which the runway was closed.
