FLIGHT DELAYS: Fog causes cancellations at ILM

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Dense fog early Thursday morning is causing cancellations at Wilmington International Airport.

According to Wilmington International Airport Director Jon Rosborough, three planes, from Charlotte, Philadelphia and New York, were turned around Wednesday night.

Due to this, the airport is three planes short Thursday morning which, with the weather, is causing a backup.

Airport officials recommend that people check with their carriers for more information because the decision to fly the plane is up to the pilot and the carrier, not ILM.

Officials say up to 200 people could be affected due to the current cancellations.
