Fog disrupts 50 flights at KIA

Early morning fog disrupted 50 flights at the Kempegowda International Airport on Saturday.

The visibility was so low that 10 incoming flights had to be diverted to other destinations. Seven of them were diverted to Chennai, two to Coimbatore and an IndiGo flight to Hyderabad.

In all, the thick layer of fog that covered most of KIA and its airfield led to the delayed departure of 28 flights. Twelve flight arrivals were also delayed between 7.05 am and 8.57 am.

As visibility dropped below 2,500 metre, a standby was declared at 6.33 am. It was withdrawn only at 9.22 am. Airport operations were suspended from 7.04 am to 8.51 am, KIA operator, Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL), informed.
