Wellington.Scoop – December 23
Wellington Airport has been closed tonight because of the fog which arrived in the late afternoon. The airport website didn’t announce the closure, but it showed that all this evening’s arrivals were cancelled.
Almost all departures were listed as cancelled as well, with passengers asked to call an 0800 helpline number to make new bookings.
A flight from Auckland due at 10pm tonight is listed as “passengers arriving by bus from Palmerston North.” So some travellers will be getting through, after an unexpected two hour road trip.
Christmas Eve update: Wellington is still covered in fog, but the airport’s schedules seem to be almost back to schedule.
