Fog envelops Jammu, all 20 flights cancelled

Jammu: Intense cold wave and dense fog crippled the normal life across the Jammu region on Monday, forcing the authorities to cancel all flights operating from the Jammu airport.

According to officials, the dense fog badly disrupted the air traffic at the Jammu airport as all flights from Jammu were cancelled due to poor visibility.

At least 20 Jammu-bound flights were cancelled at the airport due to poor visibility, leaving the passengers in a lurch.
Heavy rush was witnessed at the Jammu airport throughout the day as the airlines were not being given clearance from the Air Traffic Control (ATC) due to dense fog since morning.

“All the flights were cancelled due to poor visibility. Airlines have initiated refund for the passengers,” said Pravat Ranjan Beuria, Airport Director, Jammu.

The Jammu airport has 20 flights, which operate for Srinagar, Delhi, Mumbai, Leh, Gwalior and Lucknow.

Similarly, train services also remained affected at the Jammu railway station where at least 12 trains were running behind the schedule by several hours, causing inconvenience to passengers.
