Officials of Srinagar airport have announced that all cancelled flights are resumed for operation from Sunday. The aviation connectivity between Kashmir and the rest of the country had been restored, a day after heavy snowfall in Kashmir valley prompted the cancellation of all flights in Srinagar. Due to heavy snowfall and limited visibility, all 40 planes planned to depart from Srinagar airport on Saturday were cancelled. “Air traffic to and from Srinagar airport was restored on Sunday morning. Planes are arriving on time,” said an official with the Airports Authority of India. On Saturday, snowfall decreased visibility at the airport to less than 600 metres, according to the official. Since January 4, about 270 flights from Srinagar airport have been cancelled due to bad weather. To clear the backlog produced by the aircraft cancellations, certain airlines have stopped accepting new bookings for the Srinagar region. The authorities asked the passengers to reschedule their flights, which, according to an ET source, will be done at no extra cost by the airlines. “If travellers opt to cancel their trip, they are entitled to a full refund,” an unnamed source said to Economic Times.
