All flights delayed at Ahmedabad airport

Ahmedabad: After the potholes created by heavy rains on the runway of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International (SVPI) airport were filled up and surfaced on Saturday, the work for its maintenance continued on Sunday. This led to all domestic flights getting delayed.
Sources at the airport said that runway maintenance is conducted every Sunday but due to the rains, the maintenance work this time took almost a day. As the runway was not ready for flight operations, by Sunday evening as many as 11 flights had been delayed. The delays ranged from 30 minutes to three hours, the sources said.
The damage to the runway could not be repaired on time due to the incessant rains that had lashed the city on Saturday, the sources said.
