    Flight ops at IGIA affected due to high temperatures in Delhi

    Delhis Indira Gandhi International Airport faces flight delays amid soaring surface temperatures, affecting operations. Safety protocols are strictly followed, with flights occasionally delayed until wind speeds stabilize. High temperatures thin the air, impacting aircraft lift during takeoff and causing mid-air turbulence. Airlines adjust by reducing fuel or baggage, and in extreme cases, even offloading passengers. The scorching weather also exacerbates water shortages in the capital.
