Kozhikode: Six flights coming here from various Gulf cities were diverted to other airports Saturday morning following heavy rains and poor visibility.

Heavy rains lashing the area since last night and the
poor visibility caused by dark cloud cover made it risky for
planes to land in the Karipur International Airport, airport
sources said.

While four of the flights were diverted to
Ndeumbassery Airport near Kochi one flight each was directed
to Chennai and Thiruvananthapuram.

The flights that landed in Nedumbassery were
Dubai-Calicut, Doha-Calicut, Jeddah-Calicut and
Muscat-Calicut. Sharja-Calicut was diverted to Chennai and
Dubai-Calicut to Thiruvananthapuram.
