News | Published:

At least 1,500 travellers from Jersey Airport have had their flights delayed or cancelled because of persistent fog.

Several services have been delayed or cancelled and a number of inbound aircraft have been forced to divert to UK airports because of thick blankets of fog over the Island on Friday, Monday and Tuesday.

According to a spokesman for Ports of Jersey, as of 5 pm on Monday a total of 1,500 departing passengers had been caught up in the disruption.

Despite the problems, the mail aircraft managed to land in the Island on Tuesday after being cancelled on Monday.

According to airport staff, passengers should check in as normal unless they have been told otherwise by their airline and if your flight is cancelled, you must contact your airline directly for alternative travel options.
