An inbound easyJet flight from London Gatwick was delayed and then circled the Island for several minutes owing to the fog at around 4.30 pm.
The aircraft tried to land once and got as low as 375 ft before the pilot pulled out of the descent and began circling the Island again. The plane successfully landed on the second attempt at 4.37 pm.
Two cabin crew members felt ‘unwell’ after the landing and the airline had to fly in two extra staff for the plane’s outgoing flight.
The outgoing service was scheduled to leave at 4.50 pm but was delayed until 8.56 pm.
