Inclement weather affects flight operations in Srinagar

Srinagar: Poor visibility and light snowfall on Wednesday forced cancellation of three flights to and from the Srinagar International Airport, an official said.

“No flight has so far landed at the airport today. All other flights scheduled for today have been rescheduled,” the airport official said.

Srinagar-Leh, Mumbai-Srinagar and Srinagar-Delhi are the three flights cancelled so far due to poor visibility and runway conditions.

“We expect visibility to improve in the afternoon. Flight operations will be started as soon as the weather improves,” he added.

On Tuesday also, flight operation was disrupted at the Srinagar airport due to bad weather.
