New Delhi: Dense fog enveloped the IGI
Airport Thursday morning, delaying 15 flights.

Though there was shallow fog all through the night, there
was no disruption in operations, an airport official said.

The fog started to become dense around 7: 30 am and
general visibility dipped to less than 50 metres while runway
visibility decreased to around 100 metres on main and new
runways.

Since runway visibility dipped to below permissible take
off limit of 125 and 150 metres for different types of
aircraft, some flights were delayed.

Yesterday, around 86 flights were delayed due to poor
weather conditions and operational reasons.
