Restrictions on flights in and out of Auckland Airport due to fog were finally lifted at 2pm on Saturday.

They had been in place since 4.22am, disrupting travellers to and from New Zealand's largest city.

About 51 domestic flights were delayed and a further 64 were cancelled, Auckland Airport said.

One domestic flight and three international flights were diverted to Wellington.

WeatherWatch.co.nz said a large high pressure system over New Zealand created the fog and more fog was possible on Sunday morning.
