Fog blankets Melbourne, flights cancelled

23 April 2018

Jetstar also cancelled two return flights from the Gold Coast, while Tigerair were reported to have cancelled at least one flight and said 16 other services would be delayed due to the fog.

This isn't really the best way to start your Monday morning... many flights out of Sydney to Melbourne have been cancelled this morning.

A spokesman for Qantas said: 'We're experiencing some delays and cancellations due to thick fog. "There have been planes getting in this morning and planes have prepared themselves carrying extra fuel in case they need to make a few attempts to land".

The city is shrouded in thick grey fog for the second time in just three days after similar weather conditions swept through Melbourne on Friday.

"When visibility is reduced, it's bound to impact traffic a bit", Newham said.

VicRoads is urging motorists to take care on the roads, with some motorists reporting they can only see 50 metres in front of them at Tullamarine.

Melbourne Airport had issued flight restrictions for the airlines for Monday morning, based on the forecast.
