There were no cancellations or diversions.Though there were some delays, they were mainly due to operational reasons like poor weather conditions at the destination, he said

Delhi airport has been witnessing dense fog since Christmas day.

Last night, dense fog enveloped the new runway of the airport, while there was shallow fog on the main and second runways. This led to implementation of low visibility procedures (LVP) at the new runway around 10 PM and flights operated using CAT III instrument landing system while on the other CAT I was used.

The LVP was lifted around 7.56 AM and normal operations are going on, the official said.

About 300 flights have been affected due to fog in the past three days.
