Wellington Airport clear for landing

Wellington Airport is open for landing after heavy fog in parts of the capital disrupted a number of flights this morning.

An airport spokeswoman said planes were cleared to land from 10:45am.

The early fog caused big back-log of domestic flights. Air New Zealand cancelled 22 domestic flights due to arrive and depart from Wellington.

Jetstar Airways had its two morning flights delayed for a projected five hours.

The flights from and to Auckland were expected to depart about midday, an airline spokeswoman said.
