Srinagar, Jan 23: All incoming and outgoing flights at Srinagar International Airport were cancelled on Saturday due to poor visibility and snowfall since morning, officials said.
The first flight of Air Asia India, which was scheduled to land here from New Delhi at 0920 hrs, has been cancelled, they said.
The visibility was very poor and there was continuous snowfall due to which no flight could land or take off at the airport today, they said.
Hundreds of passengers, who had come from different parts of the valley to take flight for various destinations in the country, had to return their homes disappointed after they were informed that all flights are cancelled.
This is the second time air traffic was affected at Srinagar airport this month.
All incoming and outgoing flights were cancelled for four days due to snow and poor visibility from January 3.
The issue of cancellation of air traffic and steep increase in air fare, particularly when Srinagar-Jammu highway remains closed, was taken up by stakeholders with the 31-member Parliamentary Standing Committee (PSC) on January 21. The PSC was on a three-day visit to Kashmir valley.
