Flight operations disrupted at Srinagar airport after fresh snowfall

Fresh snowfall in most parts of Kashmir disrupted flight operations at the airport here, officials said on Saturday.

There was fresh snowfall in the higher reaches as well as the plains, including in the summer capital Srinagar here, on Friday night, a meteorological department official said.
He said while there was light snowfall in the plains of Kashmir, the higher reaches received moderate snow.
The snowfall led to cancellation of flights and delays at the Srinagar airport.

Few flights have been cancelled today because of bad weather, while most others have been delayed,” an Airports Authority of India (AAI) official said.
He said there were chances of the operations normalising later in the day with some improvement in the weather.

The meteorological department has forecast widespread rain and snow over the state with heavy falls at isolated places from Saturday till Monday.
Meanwhile, Srinagar recorded a minimum temperature of minus 2.0 degrees Celsius on Friday night, lower than minus 1.3 degrees Celsius on the previous night, the MeT official said. Indian express
