Dense fog delays flight operations

kolkata Updated: Dec 27, 2007 13:21 IST

The flight operations to and fro from Kolkata were adversely affected for over two hours this morning due to dense fog around Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport.

Till 8.30 am, the departure of about 25 flights and arrival of another 10 flights belonging to different domestic and international airlines were delayed because of poor visibility, which came down to about 50 metres at one time.

An Indigo flight from Delhi had to skip Kolkata and flew to Guwahati.

As weather improved, Jet Airways' flight to Port Blair left at 8.30 am and a Druk Air plane from Paro was the first one to touch down at the airport at around 8.40 am.
