Heavy fog disturbs air and sea transport in IstanbulStaff Writer |
Turkey Turkish Airlines advised its passengers to regularly check their flight status
Heavy fog hit Turkey's largest city Istanbul on Thursday, causing hundreds of flights and ferries to be canceled or delayed.
The Pegasus Airlines announced that all of its flights to and from the Sabiha Gokcen Airport located on the Asian side of Istanbul were affected by the thick fog.
Meanwhile, the city-line ferry agency canceled all the ferry services for the day due to the extremely poor visibility in the Bosphorus Strait and the Marmara Sea, resulting in a heavy land traffic during the morning rush hour.
Experts said the visibility was reduced to 10 meters in some locations. ■
