Morning air travelers face many delays on low visibility
The dense fog in the Netherlands is on Monday morning is not only affecting motorists, but also the air traffic. A number of airports have cancelled or delayed departing flights throughout the morning. Travelers are advised to check airports' websites or apps before heading to the airports. Schiphol has cancelled or delayed most of its departing flights up until 8:30 a.m. This is also the case for a number of flights through to 1:00 p.m. "Passengers and people picking up/dropping off are advised to consult current flight information on www.schiphol.nl or on the airlines' website", the airport writes on its website. The Rotterdam The Hague airport has cancelled or delayed six of its 17 flights scheduled to depart through 1:00 p.m. "As a result of fog in London, the flight schedule for flights to or from London City Airport is disturbed. Please check with your airline for the actual status of your flight", the airport writes. A number of flights taking off and landing at Maastricht airport are seeing delays of about an hour. Problems with the Eindhoven Airport website make it hard to check actual flight statuses. A Ryanair flight currently grounded with a three hour delay cites an Air Traffic Control hold as the reason for the delay.
