Due to the dense fog in the capital, the flights were affected at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) on Friday. Because of this, around 200 flights got cancelled which caused chaos at the Airport.
Some passengers said that they have been stuck at the airport for nine hours and were not informed about when the services were going to resume.

The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel said that due to the flight cancellation and delays the airport is converted to the bus stand.
As per the official, ‘there are days when at least five to six flights are delayed, and we face a lot of problems while managing the passengers.’
On Friday, it was very difficult for the airport authorities to manage the passengers as several flights were got diverted or delayed, and that resulted into very crowded airport terminals, an official told.
