Fog causes severe disruption at Abu Dhabi airport

DUBAI (REUTERS) - Etihad Airways reported serious disruption to arrivals and departures for all airlines after fog forced the temporary closure of Abu Dhabi International Airport on Saturday.

The airport was closed for a little more than an hour from 2.30am local time, Etihad said. "These conditions have resulted in unprecedented congestion at Abu Dhabi airport and will lead to knock-on delays throughout the network for the next 24 hours," the airline said in a statement.
