Mumbai airport main runway shut after SpiceJet incident

While largest airliners in terms of market share like Indigo and SpiceJet have asked passengers to check flight status to or from Mumbai airport, other airlines like GoAir and Vistara have cancelled a number of flights due to heavy rains. These flights which have been  cancelled are mostly from Mumbai to places like Kolkata, Delhi, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Chennai and others. Mumbai rains have been copious and they have continued now for the last five days, with more to come. This has forced airlines to announce flight delays and even waivers  on cancellation or change fee have been ordered. GoAir and Vistara have asked guided passengers to check their flight status as they have cancelled a host of flights on Tuesday. Mumbai airport has been filled with stationary air-traffic as both domestic and international carriers are facing a slowdown in operations due to weather conditions and now, with the main runway being shut down.
