Plane delays plague Tassie

Bad weather in Sydney is causing flight delays across Tasmania and beyond.

IT'S going to be a frustrating day for travellers at Tasmanian airports, with widespread flight delays.

It is believed bad weather and equipment woes at Sydney airport are causing flight problems for airlines -- and their passengers -- right across the country.

Several flights in and out of Hobart and Launceston have been affected, including services from cities other than Sydney.

An Airservices Australia spokesman said delays at Sydney were caused by a "combination of several factors".

He said there was low cloud coverage, low visibility and rain, with gusting winds of up to 35 knots.

"What we have to do is separate our planes (coming in and out of the airport) even further apart when that happens," he said.

The spokesman said they were also upgrading instrument landing systems on the main runway at Sydney airport, which are used to enhance navigation for pilots in poor conditions.

"That means that one runway is not as usable as the others (at the moment)," he said.

A Jetstar spokesman said flights out of Tasmania were experiencing delays of up to 90 minutes.

"We thank our customers for their patience," he said.
