No details were available on the extent of the disruption and the number of delayed, diverted or cancelled flights, with the Civil Aviation Authority referring to Ethiopian Airlines and the airline referring to its website.

On its website, the company only states that “due to fog at Addis Ababa International Airport, departures and arrivals are delayed”, without further details.

Take-offs also resumed in the late morning, but domestic and international flights are running several hours behind schedule, according to the same website.
