Gatwick and London City Airports issue warnings to travellers as weather causes disruption - MY LONDON
NOVEMBER 14, 2022
Those heading to London City Airport or Gatwick Airport to catch a flight are being advised to check travel or the status of their flight due to weather conditions this morning (Monday, November 14). The Met Office has issued a weather warning this morning across London, the East and South East of England. The yellow warning for fog will be in force from 4am to 10am.
London City Airport tweeted today: "Due to adverse weather conditions, please check the status of your flight before travelling to the airport." It follows a tweet last night, which read: "It’s a foggy London night, and the fog may linger into Monday morning so we’d encourage all passengers to check the status of their flight before travelling to the airport."
Gatwick Airport Police also posted an image on Twitter of the fog, warning drivers to take extra care travelling to and from the airport. They said there are some areas of very low visibility on the road network around airport.
The Met Office warns that visibility could be reduced to 100 metres in places due to the fog, and has told people to expect slow journey times with delays to bus and train services, and the possibility of delays or cancellations of flights.
The warning covers many major motorways, including the M4, M25, M23 and M1. The alert, which is in place from 4am to until 10am, warns that fog may cause some delays to travel during Monday morning.
