…and at the time of writing (10.11, to be precise), conditions have improved very little since.
There have been a number of delays at the airport.
An airport spokesperson said:
“Severe fog conditions are continuing to cause disruption to air services in and out of Jersey Airport this morning resulting in a number of delays and subsequent cancellations.
“Unless advised otherwise, airline advice to passengers due to travel today is to check in on time as planned. Anyone meeting arriving passengers should check the flight status on the travel pages of our website, jerseyairport.com
“Passengers affected by cancelled air services should contact their airline for alternative travel options.
“Airline agents and Ports of Jersey staff at the airport are offering assistance to passengers affected by this disruption.
“We have been advised by Condor Ferries that there is some space available on services to Poole and Portsmouth today.
“The operator is asking that bookings be made in person at the Condor Ferries office at the Elizabeth Terminal.”
UPDATE: A few flights have now departed:
Some good news this lunchtime. Delayed London City flight has departed & expecting a Southampton arrival imminently.
