Bhogi celebrations smoke hits flight, rail services in Chennai

Hello summers! India celebrates the end of winter solstice

Suburban rail services were delayed by about half an hour but resumed normal operations by around 9 am, they added.

Heavy smog covered Chennai and the air quality went down after residents burnt old items as.

Airport sources said departure of more than ten flights were delayed, while arrival of some aircraft were also delayed due to poor visibility following the thick fog.

As per reports, almost 12 flights were diverted and almost 30 delayed in observation of the smoke produced because of the ritualistic burning of old articles on account of festive celebrations, which has made a cause of a dip in visibility.
