Mohali: Eleven domestic flights landed at the Chandigarh International Airport on Friday night after they were diverted from Indira Gandhi International (Delhi) Airport due to bad weather conditions, the airport spokesperson said on Saturday.

Chandigarh Airport authorities coordinated with ATC and all ground-handling agencies, and accommodated 11 Delhi-bound flights from various domestic cities.

The diverted flights were from Kolkata, Aurangabad, Srinagar, Bombay, Patna, Ahmedabad, Guwahati, Bhubaneswar, Lucknow, and Amaravati. The respective airlines provided all facilities and refreshments to their passengers on time.
