Flying north? Check with airline first

Thousands of fliers were stranded at airports across India on Saturday as a thick blanket of fog engulfed New Delhi and most parts of north India.

As the visibility at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International airport dropped below 50 m on Saturday morning, 19 flights were cancelled and 31 others delayed.

About 60 per cent of domestic and international flights at Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport faced hour-long delays on all departures and arrivals. As the fog is expected to continue overnight, Mumbaiites planning to fly on Sunday have been advised to check with their airlines or visit the airport website www.csia.in for flight updates.
