The Leh Airport in Ladakh was closed for operations on Tuesday after the Indian Air Force heavy-lifter C-17 Globemaster was facing technical difficulties on the runway. According to reports, several passengers were stuck at the airport as flights were delayed or cancelled, while many flights were diverted.

Passengers of airlines including Vistara, IndiGo, SpiceJet and others faced flight disruptions. Vistara updated its customers about the rerouting of their flight from Delhi this morning due to the runway closure.
