6 flights cancelled, 60 delayed at IGI

Fog engulfs Capital 60 trains,20 flights delayed

Around 14 trains were cancelled, 60 delayed and 18 rescheduled due to the thick fog in several parts of the northern India.

The intensity of fog reduced in the capital Wednesday, after two days of dense fog in the morning.

On Wednesday, the minimum temperature was recorded as 7.4°Celsius, normal for this time of the year, while the maximum was 18.4°Celsius, a degree below normal.

At least 20 flights were delayed, according to ANI. The sky will remain clear during the day, IMD said.


Over 21 flights were delayed and six cancelled at Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport due to low visibility on Tuesday as dense fog conditions continued to prevail in the national capital region for the third consecutive day. According to the India Meteorological Department, general visibility improved to 200 metres at IGI Airport as compared to zero metres in the past two days. It is yet to be seen what further consequences of the fog are going to be, but for now, it seems to have compromised the travel of many people.

A total of 24 domestic flights and 12 global flights were delayed.

Sinha also invited suggestions to improve the system performance.

As cold wave continues to grip Delhi-NCR on Thursday morning, trains and flight schedule has adversely been affected by the low visibility.
