Some flights were delayed and some cancelled but they were due to operational reasons, they said.

Flight operations were badly hit at the IGI Airport due to dense fog for past three days leading to delay in schedules of hundreds of aircraft.

The viability at the airport remain above 2,000 metres early in the morning, but it dropped between 1,300 and 1,500 metres around 7.30 am.

However, the drop in visibility caused no disruption in flight operations.
