13 Flights Diverted Out Of Delhi Airport, Dozens Delayed Due To ‘VIP Movement’


Flights were delayed at the Delhi Airport due to VIP movement.

New Delhi: 
At least 13 flights have been diverted out of the New Delhi airport this evening due to movement of VIPs, news agency ANI reported quoting officials. At about 9 pm, the Delhi Airport’s website showed nearly 90 domestic flights arriving at the Indira Gandhi International Airport had been delayed or diverted.Many flights were delayed for over an hour. One Jet Airways flight from Patna that was scheduled to land at 2:50 pm, eventually arrived at 8:59 pm – a delay of more than six hours.

“Due to air traffic congestion consequent to VVIP movement at #Delhi airport, some of our flights are affected,” Jet Airways tweeted, requesting passengers to check their flight status before arriving at the airport. SpiceJet also issued a similar advisory.

A high frequency of VIP chartered planes landing at Delhi airport caused the delay, sources in the Delhi Air Traffic Control told ANI. A video tweeted by the news agency, showed long queues at the Terminal 1 which handles most domestic arrivals and departures.

Many people expressed their frustration on social media.

Delhi airport, which has three runways, is the busiest in the country and handles around 1,200 flight movements everyday. During peak time, the airport handles up to 70 flights per hour.
