Bad weather in Valley forces cancellation of 14 flights
Srinagar, Jan 25 (GNS): Fresh snowfall in the morning led to cancellation of 14 flights to and from the Valley on Wednesday.
“68 flights were scheduled to operate today. We could operate only 54,” officials told GNS, adding, “14 flights were cancelled due to bad weather in the morning.”
Light to moderate snowfall was recorded at most places of the Valley while the higher reaches including Gulmarg witnessed heavy snowfall.
Although snow accumulation was not much at the airport, low visibility—which was down to 500 metres—affected flight operations, the officials said.
The flight operations started after the visibility improved, they added. (GNS)
