Fog effect: 2 Delhi flights cancelled

Mohali: Dense fog led to the cancellation of two Delhi flights and delayed another by over six hours on Sunday.

The two flights cancelled were of GoAir and IndiGo with scheduled departures of 6.15am and 7.30am.

Passengers who reached Chandigarh international airport at 6am to board the early morning flight to Delhi said they had to suffer due to bad weather and poor visibility. Gurkanwal Singh, and Brigadier G S Waraich (retd), said, “We had to get our tickets cancelled after learning that the flight is delayed by six hours. As we had urgent work at Delhi, we had to take a private taxi. We do not understand that why this international airport is equipped with CAT-III-ILS, when it is much required.”

An IndiGo flight to Pune departed late by 1.29 hours at 9.19 am against the scheduled departure of 7.50 am. An IndiGo flight to Kolkata was late by 1.11 hours at 9.11 am.

Similarly, IndiGo flight to Lucknow was delayed by 1.16 hours, leaving at 9.41 am against scheduled departure of 8.25 am. A GoAir flight to Mumbai departed late by 24 hours, an IndiGo flight to Goa by 38 minutes and an IndiGo flight to Bengaluru by 1.10 hours.

Likewise, IndiGo flights from Pune arrived late by 1.04 hours, from Bengaluru by 26 minutes and from Goa by 39 minutes, said the flight operators.
