Domino effect of dense fog in north India delays flights

Pune: Dense fog in north India, especially in Delhi and the NCR region, triggered the delay of 10 flights — both inbound and departing — at the Lohegaon airport on Wednesday morning.
The delay, of more than two hours in some cases, irked passengers. No flights to/from Pune were diverted but the Delhi airport reported diversions of five flights in the morning.

Between 6am and 9am, three flights of IndiGo, SpiceJet and Air India to Delhi were delayed by 50 minutes to more than two hours. In the same duration, two flights of IndiGo and Air India — coming to Pune from Delhi — were delayed by over two hours.

Between 9am and noon, two flights, one to Delhi and another to Jodhpur, were delayed by over an hour. At the same time, three flights coming to Pune from Delhi were delayed by an hour-and-a-half to more than two-and-a-half hours.
