Fog disrupts flights at Abu Dhabi Airport

Flights into Abu Dhabi this morning were diverted to other airports in the region due to un-forecast fog.  

The dense fog, which rolled in just after midnight, also delayed the departure of 44 early morning flights by up to four hours from Abu Dhabi, while several others were cancelled. 

Six inbound flights from Colombo, Doha, Kuwait, Dammam, Seychelles and London were diverted to three airports – Al Ain, Al Bateen and Dubai World Central. 

Etihad Airways is working to minimise disruption to its customers. However, delays are anticipated for the rest of the day. 

Passengers are advised to contact the Etihad Airways Contact Centre on +971 (0) 2599 0000 or visit the Etihad Airways website at for more information on the status of flights in and out of Abu Dhabi Airport.
