All airplanes landings have been delayed at LAX Airport amid concerns over low and heavy fog clouds that have engulfed the airport and its vicinities, Latin One has learned.

Planes scheduled to land at the airport were still cruising around the terminals as of 7:53 a.m. PST as the heavy fog was affecting pilots' ability to land their planes. All inbound planes have been circling around the airport for about an hour.

As of now, tens of dozens of planes from American Airlines to Delta, United Airlines Jet Blue, Spirit and more have been affected by the conditions. All outgoing flights have also been delayed.

Latin One has learned that the heavy fog conditions were allowing visibility of about 700 ft but improved to 1000 ft after the first hour elapsed since the ground hold was issued by LAX terminal authorities.

Update - 8:36 a.m. PST

Planes have started landing in LAX after the fog shows signs of dissipation (8:36 a.m. PST) however flights that are still holding ground in their cities of origin have not been given the approval to proceed with take off as of yet.

The ground hold is expected to be lifted by 9:00 a.m. PST towards Los Angeles.

Several connecting flights in Los Angeles have been delayed as well thus passengers who are affected by this delay may still have the chance to board their flights.
