3 Delhi flights cancelled for low visibility

Thick fog enveloped Amausi airport and disrupted air traffic completely, with at least three morning flights from Delhi getting cancelled leaving hundreds of flyers stranded on Wednesday.

Visibility dipped to almost zero at Amausi airport as airlines cancelled arrival of flights one after the other. The flights that got cancelled included the IndiGo flight (6E 444) which was scheduled to arrive at the Lucknow airport at 7.30 am. Likewise, the Jet airways flight 9W-303 and JetKonnect flight-both from Delhi-scheduled to arrive at 8.00 am, were cancelled with near-zero visibility. Airlines officials said the cancellation was essentially a result of thick fog at Delhi airport that deterred the airlines from operating flights. Airlines were also deterred by low visibility at Lucknow.
