Airport delays as Brisbane, Gold Coast blanketed by thick fog

Anyone flying out of Brisbane Airport this morning is being warned of possible delays due to fog.

Residents across Brisbane and the Gold Coast have woken to a thick layer of fog blanketing the cities this morning.

The fog set in early and is causing low visibility for people in the area, with authorities urging motorists to also take it easy on the roads.


Brisbane Airport has warned it may also disrupt its operations, although the Gold Coast Airport is expected to be in the clear.

It’s a busy morning in the domestic terminal – please allow extra time & #packyourpatience as staff work to get everyone checked in & through security,” Brisbane Airport tweeted.

“Localised fog may also impact airfield operations”.

According to the weather bureau, the shroud is expected to start settling shortly and clear into a partly cloudy day, with Brisbane expecting a top of 28C and the Gold Coast heading for a high of 27C.
