Three flights diverted, two delayed due to fog at airport

Surat: Flights for Surat from other cities were delayed and had to be diverted for the second consecutive day on Thursday due to dense fog in the morning hours.
Air India’s Delhi to Surat flight, SpiceJet’s Jaipur to Surat and Hyderabad to Surat flights were diverted to Ahmedabad due to fog in the city. Two flights —morning Delhi to Surat flight of SpiceJet and Delhi to Surat flight of IndiGo — were delayed by over two hours.

Many passengers travelling to Delhi and Jaipur were stranded at Surat airport. Air India and SpiceJet flights diverted to Ahmedabad returned to Surat airport at about 11am.

Diversion and delay of the flights at Surat airport were due to non-operational instrument landing system (ILS). Airport authorities are of the opinion that diversion is likely to continue for another couple of days due to change in the atmosphere.
