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. Further foggy conditions are likely in the coming days with the potential to further disrupt transportation services.
Individuals in affected areas are advised to monitor local weather forecasts, prepare for lingering transportation disruptions, and confirm flight and train reservations. Due to health risks associated with air pollution, it is advisable to limit outdoor activities. Pollution is especially hazardous to vulnerable individuals (e.g. children, seniors, pregnant women, and individuals suffering from asthma and other respiratory issues). If experiencing breathing difficulties, seek medical attention, particularly if new symptoms appear (e.g. cough, sore throat, irritated eyes).
