As many as nine flights were diverted from the Delhi airport to Jaipur on Wednesday evening due to bad weather in the national capital. Light rain and thunderstorm lashed the national capital in the evening under the influence of a western disturbance affecting northwest India.
There were also winds gusting up to 40 kilometres per hour. Earlier, the IMD predicted a spell of rain and cloudy weather starting Wednesday night under the influence of the fresh western disturbance.
Several airlines took to Twitter inform passengers about the changes in flight schedules due to the bad weather.
