Thick fog in Britain causes more flight cancellations and delays

Source: BRT  
22 December 2006

Christmas travelers in Britain are facing a third day of misery as thick fog causes more flight cancellations and delays.

More than 300 flights have been cancelled at Heathrow, including all British Airways domestic flights, with 40,000 people expected to be affected.

Low visibility had caused air traffic control to place restrictions on flights landing and taking off at Heathrow, where 300 passengers slept at the airport overnight.

Controllers have said that although there has been some improvement in weather conditions, it was unlikely restrictions on flights will be lifted before Saturday.

The airlines has announced that passengers whose flights have been cancelled are entitled to a full refund.

Train firms have laid on extra services to cope and the roads were generally flowing smoothly this morning.
