Flights operation resumed at Abu Dhabi International Airport: Official Statement

ABU DHABI: Abu Dhabi Airports has announced that flight operations have now resumed at Abu Dhabi International Airport after closure of the runway from 07:50 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. this morning due to heavy fog which reduced visibility levels to below 75 meters, the minimum benchmark required for operations.
