65 flypast set to shut city airspace

New Delhi: Several domestic and international flights to and out of Delhi have been rescheduled for the next three days with the airspace over the capital to be closed 70 minutes daily in view of preparations for the “commemorative carnival” to mark the 1965 Indo-Pak war’s 50th anniversary. The IAF is expected to stage a spectacular flypast that includes its frontline fighter Sukhoi-30 MKI aircraft over the capital on Sunday.
According to news agencies, state-owned carrier Air India has changed the timings of as many as 58 flights including 12 international services during the period, while other airlines have also rescheduled several flights.
“Delhi airspace up to 50 miles will remain closed for commercial flights between 4 pm and 5 pm from September 18 to September 20,” Airport Authority of India (AAI) sources confirmed.
