A Sydney airport spokesman tweeted this morning, saying customers should check their flights before travelling.

“Due to fog in Sydney this morning there are some delays,” he wrote. “Please check with your airline for up to date flight information.”

Several airlines have told Sydneysiders travelling to expect delays and cancellations as visibility at the airport has dropped down to just 400 metres this morning, local time.

In western regions of the city, visibility is even worse — dropping to 50 metres in Richmond, Campbelltown and Bankstown.

Hundreds are taking to social media to share their eerie pictures of the dense haze, which has forced a ferry at Parramatta to turn back earlier this morning.

Those driving reported poor visibility and dangerous conditions across the city.

Drivers are reminded to put their fog lights on and take extra care on slippy roads from lingering rain overnight.
