Be prepared for delays because Delhi airport will be closing a runway for 3 days

The airport will be closing one of its runways from November 7 to November 10.

If you are flying in and out of Delhi next week, be prepared to face inconvenience.

That’s because one of the three runways at Indira Gandhi International airport will be closed for three days, starting from November 7, informed Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL).

The runway will be undergoing repair, reported Hindustan Times.

 Airlines, including Indigo and SpiceJet, have cancelled some of their flights, with the capacity of the airport expected to be reduced by 30 per cent during the period.

Around 300 flights will reportedly be affected by the reduced capacity. Currently, the airport handles 67 flights per hour, but between November 7 and November 10, the frequency will be restricted to 45 movements in an hour.

“Runway 11-29 of IGI airport will remain closed for maintenance for three days from 0001hrs on November 7 to 0700hrs on November 10. The scheduled time was chosen after a careful evaluation by airport operator in close consultation with Airports Authority of India (AAI) and the airlines. Given the onset of fog season, the time was jointly agreed from the perspective of safety and operational reliability,” a Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) spokesperson was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times.

The other two runways, 10-28 and 09-27 will be accommodating the load of the other runway, which will be undergoing repair.
