Flight functions could not take place at the Srinagar airport on Saturday thanks to lousy weather conditions and all flights to and fro the airport have been cancelled.

Having said that, as the climate was dry on Sunday morning and the visibility improved, the flight operations ended up resumed.

“Air traffic has resumed at the airport even though there are some delays,” an formal of the Airports Authority of India (AAI) explained.

He explained the flight functions resumed immediately after the runway was cleared and the visibility improved.

The runway was not offered for flight operations on Saturday owing to the accumulation of snow immediately after the valley obtained the 3rd snowfall of the month.
