It was a not so happy New Year’s eve for passengers travelling to and fro from Delhi as dense fog crippled flight operations at Delhi airport this morning with the airport completely shutting operations for over two hours leading to delays and diversions.
Passengers travelling throughout the day should expect delays and cancellations due to the first day of the fog this season.
Airport sources said that the airport had to be shut for over two hours starting 7:30 leading to about 12 diversions and delays.
As many as 90 flight schedules changed due to fog induced poor visibility.
Normal flight operations has resumed at the airport now, however, passengers travelling throughout the day will face delays.
Another airport source said that these delays with morning flights impacts the operation for a full day and the airline may have to cancel flights during the day to bring sanity in their operations.
With the fog giving a glimpse, it is not a great news for people who have plans to travel in the coming days.
