Shimla: Flights in and out of this Himachal Pradesh capital remained suspended for the ninth consecutive day on Friday owing to poor weather conditions, an official said.

"Flights from Delhi to Shimla remained suspended. This time it was due to poor ground visibility," an airport official said.
He said the flights have been suspended since June 23 owing to torrential rains and lower cloud formations in Shimla.
However, the air traffic from Delhi to Dharamsala and Kullu was normal. Kingfisher Airlines operates the only commercial air service to the Himachal capital.
