Flight cancelled by fog

12:29 pm on 27 November 2010

Sea fog caused the cancellation of a flight from Christchurch to Hokitika on Saturday morning.

Extra flights have been put on this week by Air New Zealand for people needing to get to Greymouth because of the Pike River coal mine disaster.

Hokitika airport says the 9.30am flight has been moved to 2.10pm. The cancellation affects 19 passengers.
