Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: This morning Over 300 flights were delayed and eight cancelled as dense fog severely hampered visibility at the Indira Gandhi International airport.  Nearly all flights arriving in and departing from Delhi were affected. About 265 domestic flights and 67 international flights were then delayed.

No take-offs could take place between 7:30 AM to 9:30 AM, according to an airport official. This was because runway visual range (RVR) was between 100-125 meters, while aircraft require more than 125 meters RVR for take off.
