Luxair cancelled a flight to London and diverted a handful of other flights on Friday afternoon because of thick fog at Findel airport.

The airline cancelled the 3.15pm London City flight along with the 3.45pm to Dusseldorf. Earlier in the day, it diverted a flight from Porto to Liège and one from Hamburg to Metz because of poor visibility in Luxembourg.

Also cancelled were:

  • LG6995/13 Luxembourg-Milan
  • LG6996/13 Milan-Luxembourg
  • LG9304/14 Frankfurt-Luxembourg
  • LG9305/13 Luxembourg-Frankfurt
  • LG4595/13 Luxembourg-London City
  • LG4596/13 London City-Luxembourg

Luxair Group spokesman Christian Welter said that half a dozen flights had been cancelled in total because of the fog.

"We need visibility up to 200 metres to land and we only had 150 metres, which is clearly insufficient,” he said.

He said that if weather conditions continue, further cancellations could occur. Flight passengers expecting to travel in or out of Luxembourg on Friday were urged to visit luxair.lu
