Fog that disrupted domestic flights in and out of Auckland Airport today has lifted.

A spokesman said the fog cleared this morning and the backlog of travellers had mostly cleared.

"There's still a few passengers in the domestic terminal,'' he said.

Earlier reports that a flight leaving to Sydney had been cancelled because of the fog were incorrect, and the cancellation was due to a mechanical issue, he said.

The fog also slowed traffic this morning as the city was shrouded at a low level, reducing visibility.
