Air traffic again disrupted at Srinagar Airport

Srinagar: Air traffic at Srinagar Airport was disrupted again today as many flights were cancelled due to poor visibility caused by dense fog.

“Flight operations were affected again today due to poor visibility,” Director Airport Authority of India (AAI), Srinagar, Sharad Kumar told PTI.

Kumar said only four flights were able to land at the airport this morning.

“Four flights landed at the airport in the morning, which then took off from here. So, in all, we had only eight flights today,” he said.

The director said the rest of the flights were cancelled as the visibility was below the required 1.3 km.

“A total of 26 flights to and fro Srinagar airport were cancelled,” he said.

The air traffic at the airport has remained affected over the last two weeks as a thick layer of fog continued to engulf many parts of Kashmir, including the city.
