Air services have been badly hit as both international and domestic flights are arriving and departing late. Passengers are left in the lurch but airlines have ensured functioning of services.



One international and seven domestic flights were delayed at Delhi'S IGI airport, while four dometic flights were cancelled today.

The dense fog has led to low visibility of around 100 to 200 metres. The Delhi police has advised people not to speed and to drive with headlights, fog lights or blinkers on.
