Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi, India, has resumed normal operations after having to close two runways on 2 January due to fog.

More than 50 flights were disrupted after dense fog and a cable fault in the runway visual range measuring equipment closed the two CAT-III-B-compliant runways.

Airport operations were halted for more than eight hours, affecting more than 200 domestic and international flights.

The fog forced the diversion of 18 flights to other cities, while more than 50 international and domestic flights were also delayed.
