TIMEFRAME expected from 1/21/2019, 12:00 AM until 1/21/2019, 11:59 PM (UTC). COUNTRY/REGION New Delhi


As of the morning (local time) of Monday, January 21, flight disruptions (flight diversions, delays, cancelations) were reported at New Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL) due to heavy fog affecting the New Delhi region. Train services in the region were also affected (delays, cancelations). Further disruptions are expected throughout the day.

If experiencing breathing difficulties, seek medical attention, particularly if new symptoms appear (e.g. cough, sore throat, irritated eyes).
