Dozens of flights were disrupted by thick fog at Delhi airport (AP)
Thousands of air and rail passengers were hit by cancellations, diversions and delays after Delhi was enveloped by thick fog.
At least one international service had to land at Mumbai as more than 30 flights were cancelled or diverted last Wednesday. Over 100 flights had been hit the previous day after visibility at the Indian capital's airport fell to near-zero levels. The weather conditions also caused dozens of train services to run late. Fog routinely disrupts travel in northern India, highlighting how important it is for travellers to the region to have a good
travel insurance policy.
The Press Trust of India (PTI) reported that fog began descending on Delhi airport before last Tuesday night before thickening on Wednesday morning, leaving runway visibility at less than 25 metres. Operations were suspended at the airport with a total of seven flights cancelled on Wednesday and an Air India service from Hong Kong diverted to Mumbai.
