Chennai rain: Eight flights cancelled

Chennai: Four arrivals and four departures have been cancelled at Chennai airport on Wednesday due to bad weather.

The flights were cancelled due to anticipated bad weather conditions on Wednesday evening and at night.

IndiGo airlines flights to Madurai at 4.10pm, Mumbai at 7.55pm and Trichy at 7.55pm and an Air Arabia flight to Sharjah at 9.35 pm have been cancelled.

IndiGo Airlines flights from Madurai at 7.30pm, Trichy at 10.30pm, Mumbai at 1am (on November 11) and an Air Arabia flight from Sharjah have been cancelled.

The domestic flights, being operated using smaller aircraft (ATR-72), were cancelled as a precaution because strong wind is forecast at night.

"The airlines took the decision based on the weather forecast to prevent inconvenience to passengers. The cancelled domestic flights are smaller aircraft which may have difficulty landing in windy conditions," said an AAI official.
