PASSENGERS experienced a second day of disruption as fog remained over the island early yesterday.

Airport director Colin Le Ray said in the morning that airlines would be dealing with the backlog from Wednesday’s delays.

By lunchtime flights had begun moving and delays were roughly an hour.

The airport also stayed open late last night to clear the backlog.
