30 flights delayed, 12 diverted at airport as fog brings down visibility

The Delhi airport on Tuesday alerted passengers of flight delays as dense fog continued to hover over the national capital for the third consecutive day, bringing down the visibility to nearly zero. According to the Delhi Airport Flight Information Display System data, the Indira Gandhi International or IGI airport is experiencing delays in both arrivals and departures for about 30 flights, while 12 flights – 11 to Jaipur and one to Lucknow – have been diverted from 6 am to 12 pm.

The Delhi airport also issued an advisory for passengers saying while the landing and takeoffs continue at the airport, flights that are not CAT III compliant may be affected. The CAT III instrument is an anti-fog landing system initiated during poor visibility.

“While landing and take-offs continue at Delhi airport, flights that are not CAT III compliant may get affected. Passengers requested to contact the airline concerned for updated flight information. Any inconvenience caused is deeply regretted,” the Delhi airport’s advisory read.
