Sea-Tac Airport lifts flight suspension, more delays possible due to fog

The Port of Seattle announced a temporary suspension of flights in and out of Sea-Tac Airport Monday morning due to fog.

Overnight fog limited visibility for most people around Puget Sound on Monday. But it may have been Sea-Tac Airport that felt the brunt of its force.

Shortly before 9 a.m., the Port of Seattle announced a temporary suspension of all "take offs and landings due to fog." That suspension lifted around 10:30 a.m. when visibility improved around the airport.

Delays are still possible throughout the day depending on conditions. The port encourages all passengers to track their flight status.

Between 5-9 a.m., 79 percent of departures were delayed out of Sea-Tac Airport with an average delay of 26 minutes, according to the Federal Aviation Administration and online tracking data.

More than a dozen flights were diverted to other airports Monday morning. Online data reported most of the diverted flights ended up at airports within Washington state, but a few were directed to land in Portland, Salt Lake City, Minneapolis, and Dallas-Fort Worth.
