Over 500 Flights Delayed and 21 Diverted Due to Delhi Fog:- Over 500 flights from various destinations to New Delhi got delayed while 21 flights have been diverted due to the dense fog in New Delhi airport today. Four flights got cancelled after the national capital witnessed the coldest day ever this year. The flights are operating under CAT IIIB conditions which means that the Runway Visual Range (RVR) is between 50 and 175 metres. Several passengers are left in the airport with the delays and cancellations.
