9:44 am on 29 June 2018

Fog restrictions at Auckland Airport have been lifted after another day of disruptions.

Thick fog cancelled 26 domestic flights and delayed a further 27 flights this morning.

Yesterday hundreds of passengers were affected by a security breach at the domestic terminal of the airport.

Regional flights from Auckland were cancelled including those to Palmerston North, New Plymouth, Gisborne, Tauranga, Rotorua and Blenheim.

An airport spokesperson said one flight from Wellington to Auckland was also cancelled.

No international flights were affected.

Travellers are advised to check with their airline or the airport website for updates on flights.

Drivers in Auckland and Northland are also being urged to take extra care on roads this morning.

NZTA said the fog had reduced visibility on roads in some northern areas and motorists should drive to the road conditions.
