Due to the delayed departure from their home towns due to bad weather, eight flights left and arrived late at Chandigarh International Airport on Tuesday.
In addition, three flights to Srinagar – two from Go First and one from IndiGo – were canceled because inbound flights were unable to take off from Srinagar due to bad weather, flight operators said.
The first Go First flight (G8-911) from Ahmedabad arrived 1:08 a.m. late compared to the scheduled 10 a.m. arrival. As a result, her return at 10:55 am was also delayed by 1:04 am.
Air India’s Dharamshala flight (AI-9713) landed 19 minutes late due to bad weather in the hill town. As such, the airline’s AI-9714 flight to Dharamshala also departed from 1:05 p.m. to 12:05 p.m., compared with a scheduled departure of 11 a.m.
The Air Vistara flight (UK-657) from Bengaluru also left the source city late, delaying its arrival in Chandigarh by 39 minutes. His return trip was also delayed by 38 minutes.
