Fog disrupts London City Airport again

Thick fog caused disruption at London City Airport for a second day.

Thick fog caused disruption at London City Airport for a second day.

The airport closed at 06:30 GMT on Monday February 11th to flights to and from the airport due to poor visibility, although operators were able to get planes moving again later in the day. A spokesperson for the airport told The Times: "Because of our short runway, take-offs and landings are steep, which means the margin for error is limited."

However, the thick fog descended again on Tuesday and airport bosses urged passengers to check with their airlines before travelling to the airport.

Meanwhile, the airport announced earlier this month that it would be running two additional business flights to New York when British Airways launches new services to the US city. Commenting on the development, City Airport chief executive Richard Gooding OBE, said: "This is a fantastic development for the airport and we welcome British Airways’ continued commitment to their growth at London City Airport."
