Serbia: thick fog causes disruption at Belgrade airport

Alarm over air pollution remains high

15 January, 12:04

    (ANSAmed) - BELGRADE, JANUARY 15 - Due to thick fog recorded over the past few days in Belgrade and across Serbia, several flights at the city's 'Nikola Tesla' airport were cancelled or moved to other airports in the region on Wednesday morning.

    Authorities said the airport remains open because it has modern and sophisticated equipment enabling flights to take off and land underextreme conditions of low visibility and that it is up to air carriers and pilots to decide whether to divert a flight.

    The dense fog is intensifying the high level of pollution reported in the air in Belgrade and in the rest of the country, where health authorities are urging the population to reduce the time they spend out in the open, in particular in the morning and at night. According to local media reports, Belgrade ranks eighth in the world for air pollution. (ANSAmed).
