FOG & ADVERSE WEATHER FAQS
Fog can be considered as a low-lying cloud of water droplets or ice crystals suspended in the air above ground level which causes obstruction to visibility. It is a common phenomenon during the winter season in Delhi mid-December to February and impact airport operations to a great extent.
Delhi IGI Airport has state-of-art CAT IIIB Instrument landing systems equipped on Runways 11, 29 and 28. These systems are the most advanced of its class and provide the guidance required for pilots to land an aircraft in low visibility conditions. While the equipment are available at airport, it also requires aircraft to be equipped on board and pilot to be trained to utilize these systems, ie; be CAT IIIB compliant. Most modern aircraft are CAT IIIB compliant and Airlines are required to roster CATIIIB qualified pilots during fog.
Although aircraft and airport technology is continually evolving, operations during fog is limited to an extent. There is a minimum visibility required for pilots to safely land an aircraft in dense fog. Aircraft can land in up to 50 m RVR (Runway Visual Range) and normally take off if RVR is above 125 m. Take off can also take place if RVR is above 75 m if aircraft is equipped with approved lateral guidance system.
Occasionally, the RVR at runway drops below 125m, which normally is minima for most of the aircrafts to depart but is above 50m, (minimum to land). Thus aircrafts wait for take off until there is improvement to the required level of RVR. However arriving aircrafts can land up to visibilities of 50m with the help of CAT IIIB ILS systems at IGI Airport.
The Meteorological department of the Govt. of India issues advance cues about the probability of fog However accuracy of advance notification of fog has been challenge worldwide.
Airline schedules are dependent on aircrafts arriving and departing on time. Any disruption to this close knit operation will result in cascading effect to the entire network, flyers missing connecting flights, havoc to ground resource planning (stands and airfield) and stress to personnel trying to get flyers moving. This leads to Airports being overcrowded, customer service challenges and overall stress on the infrastructure.
One of the most frustrating aspects of air travel is a delay caused by inclement weather, in particular fog. The frustration is shared by airports, airlines and its ground handlers. Airlines may face several issues with fog causing delayed incoming aircraft, departure restrictions, aircraft taxiing issues, logistics hindrances etc. Also weather at destination is crucial. Even if an aircraft is able to depart in bad weather, it must be equally safe for it to land at its destination airport affected by weather. It is in the interest of rationale or passenger safety that flights are cancelled or delayed. Airlines provide options to passengers as per their individual policies based on Govt. guidelines.
In the first instance, you must always contact your airline for information on flight arrivals and departures. When there is fog impact, airlines usually combine flights on a larger aircraft or reallocate aircraft operating a specific flight. Customers should check flight status before starting from home in case of fog. Passenger are also advised to maintain calm and cooperate with Airport staff who does their best in handling the challenge imposed on them by mother nature.
Fog trends are dynamic. Flight operations are to a large extent determined by this trend. Aircrafts often wait their time out either hovering above or on ground to land or take off as and when an opportunity arises. Since the intensity and lifting time are difficult to predict, all stakeholders are asked to be ready to utilize favorable conditions when they occur.

Airlines delegate personnel to address your queries and concerns. Also our professional Terminal team would be happy to reach out to help you.
