Flights Delayed, Diverted At Delhi Airport After Heavy Rain, Thunderstorm

Heavy rain, along with thunderstorm, hit Delhi again on Monday evening after the first bout early this morning. The late evening showers have delayed several flights, while many have been diverted forcing airlines to issue updates.

“The skies have decided to drench #Delhi. Our flight operations might get impacted. For cancelled flights, visit to opt for Plan B. Please keep enough travel time in hand to avoid any hassle. To check the flight status, please visit,” tweeted IndiGo.
