New Delhi flights and trains hit by heavy fog

Heavy fog today hit air and train traffic at New Delhi, with about 20 flights from Indira Gandhi International Airport here being delayed and two cancelled while over 25 Delhi-bound trains running late by upto 11 hours.

Dense fog enveloped the airport around 11.30 am with runway visibility dropping to 600 metres which forced the airport authorities to implement the low visibility procedures.

The runway visibility continued to deteriorate and drop to 75 metres forcing some airlines to divert their flights to Jaipur and Mumbai.

While most airlines press relations claimed “near normal operations”, on the ground, however, passengers had a different story to tell.

Real time flight arrival and departure information can be found here. Airport and airline call centre numbers and other details can be found in articles on New Delhi airport.
