Dense fog at the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport at Shamshabad disrupted flight operations on early Saturday. As a result, the Airport authorities have suspended two flights bound for Delhi and Bengaluru as well as two international flights. The flights coming towards Hyderabad were diverted to Bengaluru.
According to the information, the fog halted the flight operations between 5.30 am and 7am. Flights coming from Dubai, Muscat, Chennai and Mumbai were diverted to Bengaluru. The flights returned to the Hyderabad airport after the runway was cleared.
This is the first time this winter that fog has hit the flight services at the Shamshabad airport. (NSS)
