Air services were disrupted for over four hours in New Delhi on Tuesday morning after a thick blanket of fog enveloped the national capital and surrounding areas.

No services operated from the Delhi airport between five and nine on Tuesday morning as the Runway Visibility Range reduced to near zero.

Air operations resumed at 9.15 am as fog started clearing away, airport sources said.

Several international flights to the Capital were diverted, they said.

Air services were hit due to fog last Friday also.
