As the weather remained cold and foggy on Tuesday, all flights from the city airport operated with a delay of an hour or above.


The Jet Airways flight to Mumbai which departs at 12.45pm was delayed by 78 minutes. The morning Spice Jet flight to Delhi which departs at 10.25 am was 45 minutes late. Another Jet Airways flight to Delhi which departs from the city at 12.55pm was delayed by about an hour. The weather also cast its shadow on the flights arriving to the city from Delhi and Mumbai.

The airport officials said operations were not affected much by the rain and most disruption was created by fog.

Airport director HS Toor said, "There was fog in the morning but it was overpowered by rain, allowing flights to operate. No major disruption was witnessed".

Meanwhile, all flights from the city were jam-packed on the last day of the year. The authorities said there were many last-minute buyers of tickets.
