Delhi: Bad weather delays flights

January 18, 2006 11:38 IST

Night temperature in Delhi went up to 14.4C, the highest this winter, but morning fog blanketed the capital, reducing visibility to 600 mt, the Weather Office said Wednesday.

The minimum temperature registered in Delhi was 7C above normal, it said.

However, inclement weather in other parts of north India delayed departure of flights from the Delhi airport.

A Jet Airways flight to Lucknow took off at 0855 hrs from Delhi, 25 minutes behind schedule, due to bad weather at the Uttar Pradesh capital, an airline official said.

Inclement weather in Leh also delayed an Indian Airlines Delhi-Leh flight, scheduled for departure at 0645 hrs, by 0415 hrs, an IA official said.

There were no reports of delays in train departures from Delhi because of weather.
