Flights resume at Dunedin Airport after fog disruptions

Services have resumed at Dunedin Airport this afternoon after major fog disruptions today.

Dunedin Airport customer experience manager Jesse Gibbs said NZ675 from Auckland landed shortly after 2pm after fog lifted to a level allowing normal operations.

There was a ''significant backlog'' of flights to clear, and some airlines had added additional services, he said.

"It's still a very busy terminal.''

Mr Gibbs said staff hoped ''a southerly would kick in and get rid of the fog,'' which had lingered all morning and into the early afternoon.

Meanwhile, high demand appears to have caused the Dunedin Airport website to go down as of 2.40pm this afternoon.


The website couldn't be reached for much of the day but affected travellers aired their frustrations on social media. 

Shortly after 2.15pm the airport tweeted that the first flight for the day had just landed.

It marks another day of fog disruptions at the airport, which has experienced several in the past few days.

Flights at Queenstown Airport were running to schedule this morning.
