Fog Delaying Flights at PHL Airport

The FAA-ordered ground stop has ended, but there's still a huge backlog of flights at PHL today.

Flights are delayed an average of 75 minutes at Philadelphia International Airport today, as heavy fog led the FAA to order a ground stop this morning.

The foggy morning is expected to give away to a rainy afternoon, with precipitation moving in around 2 p.m.

Flight information for individual flights departing from or arriving to PHL can be checked with a call to 1.800.745.4283 (that’s 1.800.PHL.GATE). The airport recommends passengers (or those picking up one) call to check on the status of a flight before leaving for the airport.
