Chetumal, Q.R. — Thick morning fog was the cause for at least one flight being diverted to Cozumel. On Friday, a flight from Mexico City was forced to land at Cozumel International after being unable to do so at the Chetumal airport.
The Volaris flight landed safely on the island after being forced to head to Cozumel due to thick morning fog in Chetumal. Once on the ground, the plane refueled and sat to wait for weather to improve in the state’s capital before heading back to its original destination.
The flight, which was scheduled to land at Chetumal at 8:50, was finally able to land at 10:15 a.m.
The thick blanket of fog left a near-zero visibility for the early morning city flight. The arrival of the fog was blamed on the entry of Cold Front 23.
