IndiGo flight delayed due to fog

Nagpur:  The IndiGo Mumbai-Nagpur-Mumbai flight 6E 413 was delayed by more than an hour-and-a-half on Thursday morning due to fog at Nagpur airport. The aircraft was scheduled to land at Nagpur airport around 8am.
Sources said the pilot claimed that visibility at Nagpur airport was low for landing. So the aircraft was diverted to Hyderabad.
The aircraft, which was scheduled to depart from Nagpur at 9.05am, just 25 minutes before the runway is closed for recarpeting work, returned from Hyderabad at 10.25am and finally took off around 11am. This delayed the start of recarpeting work. An airport official said such adjustments have to be made for scheduled flights.
