At 8 pm today, visibility at Delhi Airport dropped to zero: IMD

New Delhi: Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) reported zero visibility at 8 pm on Friday due to very dense fog, which resulted in delaying a number of flights to and from the national capital. At least five flights were diverted and 12 were running late as of 8 pm due to low visibility at one of the country's busiest airports.

"Five flights have been diverted since morning at Delhi Airport due to low visibility and around 12 flights are running late," said an official. According to agency reports citing airport officials, operations at IGIA were affected due to bad weather and while take-offs and landings continued even during the low visibility hours, operational limitations on the crew impacted flight schedules.
"Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport reported zero visibility at 2000 hrs today due to very dense fog. It is likely to continue during the next 4-5 hours," India Meteorological Department (IMD) said on Friday evening.
