UK fog: Flights to and from India unaffected

London: Services from all airports in the UK have been disrupted since Wednesday when dense fog enveloped the British Isles but airports in the South of England such are Heathrow, Gatwick, Manchester and Cardiff are the worst affected.
Flights to and from India are unaffected and running as per schedule with only minor delays. “Our flights to and from India have been operating on schedule. We only had one delay with a flight from Chicago yesterday being diverted to Paris because of the fog in London,” KD Row, General Manager, Air India told DNA. Air India operates 31 flights from Heathrow and 10 from Birmingham a week.
There is severe fog warning for most of the UK and parts of Europe up to Christmas. “Mumbai is fine, it’s Delhi and London that we have problems with. Yesterday we waited for the fog to lift in the afternoon, but today the fog hasn't even lifted in the afternoon” added Row.
