New Delhi/Hyderabad: Low visibility due to heavy smog disrupted flight operations at the Delhi airport on Sunday, with 37 flights diverted to other airports and more than 250 departures and 300 arrivals delayed, officials said.

The disruption in the Delhi airport has delayed six flights at the Hyderabad airport.

 

According to officials of the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, flights that were coming to Hyderabad from Delhi, were either delayed or diverted owing to the lack of visibility.

Air India officials confirmed that there were a few flights that originated from Delhi, which were diverted to other airports since there was ‘solid fog’ on the runway, which reduced the visibility of the pilots.
