Flights diverted due to dense fog at Irish airports, but smoke no threat at Dublin


A number of flights have been either diverted or cancelled due to heavy fog at Irish airports.
While disruption was minimal at Dublin Airport, a number of flights had to divert. “The airport is fully operational but the fog has caused four diversions. Three have gone to Shannon – Ryanair have one, Turkish Airlines have one and Flybe have one gone to Shannon too, with one Ryanair flight returning back,” a DAA spokesperson told Travel Extra.
Passengers are advised to check with their airlines before travelling as the airport, while fully operational, is reporting “dense” fog.

Meanwhile, smoke from a major fire in St Margaret’s, close to Dublin Airport, was spotted by passengers on flights today, Wednesday, December 10. However, despite its proximity, the blaze did not affect airport operations. “We provided some assistance to them out there. One appliance went out as it is very close to us – just 10 minutes away. It didn’t cause any disruption here thankfully,” the DAA source added.
Flights from Shannon and Cork are operating normally, as is the case with Belfast International. However, Belfast City airport has been affected by the weather conditions. It advised passengers via Twitter: “Flight cancellations confirmed for today due to severe fog at Belfast City Airport. Please check our live flight information pages for updates before travelling to the airport: Contact your airline directly for re-booking queries.”
