The worst day of travel in 2019, Jan.2, due to fog at Sydney Airport

Published on : Wednesday, January 2, 2019

Low-lying fog and crowds caused delays for scores of customers at Sydney airport on the second day of 2019 and it stretched into the evening. It is termed as the worst day of travel for the year. Passengers are furious as they are stuck in long, unmoving queues into the evening.

 

 

Passengers complained of facing massive queues at the check-in desks early morning, and the unmoving queues of passengers stretched out of the terminal through the smoking area.

 

 

With more than 50 flights delayed, some passengers endured delays of up to 70 minutes. Few flights were held back for up to an hour or more. Several passengers had to wait between 10 and 15 minutes to board. The airport struggles to clear the backlog this evening but the delays are still ongoing. The situation left the passengers flummoxed. Social media was full of photos reflecting the plight of disgruntled passengers at the Sydney Airport.

 

 

Virgin Australia tweeted that, “We are experiencing longer than normal queues due to weather”. Virgin said that the delays were because it is the busiest day of the year with ‘over 10,000 passengers’.

 

 

 

Flights are returning to their normal schedule gradually.  The last delay was cleared before seven this evening.
