Flights back on track at Leeds Bradford Airport after fog causes two more cancellations

Have your say

Disruption to flights due to thick fog looming over Leeds has caused two more flights to be cancelled today.

Two scheduled flights due to depart from Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA) to Aberdeen and Southampton this morning were the latest to be cancelled.

Three incoming and three outgoing flights were also cancelled yesterday as fog caused widespread transport issues across the UK.

But LBA aviation development director Tony Hallwood believes that following issues this morning the worst of the weather looks to be over.

He said: "It looks at long last that the fog has now lifted. The weather forecast has been saying there's going to be rain coming in and the adverse conditions are going to abate which looks as though it is the case.

"We are taking those words at face value and are hoping we are now seeing normal weather cycles resume."

A number of flights were also cancelled at Leeds Bradford on Monday as thick fog caused travel travel disruption across the UK and northern Europe.

Some 129 flights – equivalent to 10 per cent of departures – were cancelled at Heathrow Airport on Monday while London City, Gatwick, Manchester, Liverpool John Lennon, Glasgow, Belfast and Southampton airports were also affected.
