Sumburgh fog disruption

Sumburgh Airport.

LOGANAIR is confident all passengers flying in and out of Shetland on Friday will reach their destinations after thick fog caused major disruption at Sumburgh Airport.

The airline brought in two extra planes to cope with a backlog of flights which began to build up in the morning.

The 7.35am arrival from Aberdeen was cancelled, while some flights in and out of Sumburgh were delayed by a number of hours.

A Loganair spokesman said on Friday afternoon: “Thick fog badly affected Sumburgh Airport early in the day, causing delays.

“When it cleared, we brought in two extra aircraft and are working to clear the backlog. We are confident that all passengers will reach their destinations today.”
