Two Delhi-bound flights diverted to Ahmedabad
Ahmedabad: Owing to foggy conditions in the national capital, two Delhi-bound flights have been diverted to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport (SVPIA), an airport official said.
The two flights -- Chennai-Delhi (of Blue Dart) and Kalitta Air`s Hongkong-Delhi -- have been diverted here since morning, an airport official said.
