Flights diverted due to bad weather

The city appears to have copied the Delhi weather. In an unusual occurrence for Hyderabad, heavy fog in the morning led to the disruption of flights at Shamshabad International Airport here and threw into disarray the travel plans of hundreds of passengers. Few flights could not land while some others could not take off between 0600 hrs and 0830 hrs, according to Airport sources.

The city has not seen such a disruption of flights due to heavy fog in the last 15 years, the sources claimed. ‘All flights coming from Delhi, Ahmedabad and Jaipur, that were scheduled to land in Hyderabad were diverted to Chennai, airport official said. After the fog cleared, they landed at the Shamshabad Airport , the official added.
