London Airports Fog Diversions And Delays (March 2014)

Thu Mar 13, 2014 6:19 pm

I heard this morning that London had thick fog this morning, but here at STN it was relatively clear. Was there any/many diversions at say LHR/LGW/LCY etc.

Mostly LCY that got affected:

http://www.standard.co.uk/news/trans...ick-early-morning-fog-9188731.html

' Arrivals and departures were cancelled at London City Airport and Heathrow Airport reported minor delays on some in-bound flights, but said there were no cancellations or delays to flights from the airport. Gatwick has said it has no cancellations and no major delays. A Gatwick spokesman said: “We have had one flight re-diverted to us from London City airport, but otherwise everything is operating 100 per cent as normal.” '

I believe it was only two aircraft that went to STN instead of LCY.

I think that one of the BA JFK-LCY flights diverted via LGW due to the fog but was then able to position back to LCY later in the day.

I couldn't fly yesterday morning because of the fog so rebooked for this morning and it has just been cancelled. LCY does seem to be slightly prone to such problems, thanks to being by the river. (I live nearby and right now can't see the opposite bank of the river.)
Clearly nobody would be crazy enough to suggest building a major new airport on the Thames or out in the estuary, would they?

Having said that, STN in winter/spring is very often in thick fog, and they don't seem to have many problems there.
