NEW DELHI, Dec 31 — Dense fog enveloped the Indira Gandhi International Airport here on Monday morning, disrupting the schedule of around 40 flights. Overnight around 16 flights were delayed. Around five flights were cancelled either due to operational reasons or due to poor weather, Press Trust of India (PTI) quoted an airport official as saying.
Fog started to descend on the airport from last night but it started to become dense around 7 am, forcing authorities to implement low visibility procedures.
Dense fog returned to the Indian capital on Sunday after a four-day lull, affecting over 130 flights.
