Auckland flights cancelled due to fog

12:06 pm on 27 June 2009

Fog is disrupting domestic flights at Auckand Airport.

At least 14 out-bound flights have been cancelled and 10 flights have been unable to land.

Flights on larger aircraft, to and from Wellington and Christchurch, have continued as normal.

An airport spokesperson said late Saturday morning that the low-visibility status had been lifted, though the airport's website is warning of continuing delays on flights.

MetService spokesperson Oliver Druce says the fog, which has affected much of the North Island, may last all day in some places.

He says conditions needed to move the fog - strong wind and rain - will arrive on Sunday.
