Arrangements made
The Northern Railways said that adequate arrangements had been made for passenger facilities at all major railway stations in Delhi, along with adequate deployment of railway and security officials.
Though the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) in Delhi saw a dip in visibility on Friday morning, the runway visual range (RVR) – the height at which the runway is visible to a pilot – was good enough for flights to operate.
IGIA not hit
“The Delhi fog on nights of December 7,8 was patchy type and at IGIA, the runway 28 didn’t have dense fog. However, runway 29-11, the rural side of IGIA has some CAT-IIIA dense fog which was just for few hours during 1.30am and 3 am on Friday,” said RK Jenamani, Director-in-Charge, IGIA MeT unit. “Hence, IGIA has almost normal operation,” he said.
