Fog delays 15 flights in Delhi

January 06, 2009 10:23 IST

After a day's respite, fog disrupted operations at New Delhi's [Images] Indira Gandhi [Images] International airport on Tuesday morning. 15 flights, both of domestic and international carriers, were delayed and 10 others cancelled.

General visibility dropped to 50 metres and runway visibility dipped to 150 metres, airport officials said.

A blanket of fog began to envelope the national capital's airport late on Monday night and visibility deteriorated following which airport authorities implemented low visibility procedure.

Over 100 flights were cancelled and more than 600 delayed due to dense fog last week.
