Three Delhi-bound flights including one from China diverted to Nagpur

Dense fog in Delhi forced diversion of three Delhi-bound flights to Nagpur on Sunday. Due to fog, 40 flights were diverted to different airports in the country. The three flights diverted to Nagpur included Guangzhou (China) to Delhi (India) flight CZ3027, Dubai-Delhi flight, and a flight of GoAir.

After the visibility in Delhi improved by afternoon, these flights took off for Delhi. Fog also led to delay in flights landing at Nagpur. Delhi-Nagpur Jet Air flight arrived five hours late, IndiGo flight from Delhi reached Nagpur two-and-a-half hours late, flight from Pune arrived at Nagpur three hours late.

Besides, the flight from Bengaluru reached Nagpur one-and-a-half hours late, Mumbai-Nagpur flight reached Nagpur one-and-a-quarter hours late. Jet Air’s 4.45 pm flight from Delhi was cancelled. The China Southern’s CZ3027 Guangzhou (China) to Delhi (India) flight got diverted to Nagpur.

The diversion panicked some passengers.
