SFO Experiencing Delays After Heavy Fog Forces FAA To Put Airport On Ground Delay Program

The San Francisco International Airport has been put on a ground delay program this morning due to the fog by the Federal Aviation Administration, according to an SFO spokesman.

As of 6:30 a.m. all flights coming in from locations further than 1,625 miles were delayed, Duty Manager Joe Walsh said.

Walsh said in walking around the airport there weren’t too many delays, with most flights being delayed about 15 to 30 minutes and a few that were delayed by 60 minutes, however he said that could change within the hour depending on the weather.

Walsh said if the fog cleared, the FAA would likely lift the delay.
