No flights departed at Eindhoven Airport on Wednesday evening because of the fog.

Four scheduled flights were cancelled. At least 550 passengers were accommodated in hotels. Several flights were cancelled on Tuesday as well. Thursday morning flights were also disrupted.

On Wednesday evening, several flights are scheduled to Alicante, Wroclaw, Sofia, and Budapest. The passengers waited in the planes for hours, but those flights were eventually cancelled. Besides these, two flights from Alicante were cancelled.

Code yellow

Because of the fog, KNMI (Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute) issued a yellow code for North Brabant. In some areas in the province, visibility was less than 200m, due to the fog. The fog also caused significant problems at the airport on Tuesday morning and evening. Several flights were unable to depart at that time.

Flights resumed at 11:00 on Thursday.
