He reached the station late, so he missed the train.

Thank you very much.

But, still I have a doubt whether we can start a sentence with 'Due to' or not.

Please confirm , if the following sentence is correct.

Due to fog, most of the flights are late.

OK.

Due to arriving late at the station he missed the train.

anonymousDue to arriving late at the station he missed the train.

No, that is clumsy and unnatural.

He missed the train because he didn't get to the station in time.
