Video: Delhi cold hits new low, seasons lowest at 2.7 degrees Celsius

Operations at the Indira Gandhi International Airport were affected today after fog disrupted the schedule of around 30 flights.

Around 16 flights were delayed while one was cancelled and three international flights were diverted to other airports this morning, either due to operational reasons or on account of bad weather, airport sources said.

Three international flights, one of Air India (AI-946) from Dubai, another of Jet Airways (9W-017) from Singapore and one of Uzbekistan Airways (HY 421) from Tashkent arriving here between 2.30 a.m. and 3 a.m. were diverted to Jaipur and Amritsar as visibility at the airport was poor.

Visibility started to deteriorate when fog began to envelop the airport around midnight and it forced the airport authorities to implement low visibility procedures.

Though there was fog at the airport yesterday, it did not affect flight operations. Around 50 flights were affected due to operational reasons yesterday.
