New Delhi: After remaining disrupted for
almost a week due to dense fog, flight operations at the IGI
Airport were normal on Monday.

"Air operations were normal and all flights were
operating as per schedule as there was no fog and the
visibility remained over 2,000 metres at the airport early in
the morning," an airport official said.

The runway visibility was above 2,000 metres last
night and early this morning but it dropped to a low of 1,300
metres after 7.00 am as shallow fog descended on the airport, a
Met official said.

Though shallow fog did not cause any disruption to
flight movement, one flight each of Jet Airways and Jetlite
was cancelled while few others were delayed due to
operational reasons.

In view of the foggy conditions, some international
carriers have already rescheduled their flights.

Thick fog had badly affected air operations at the IGI
Airport for the past six days, leading to cancellation of 85
flights and delaying around 780 others.
