As you all might know that Nisarga Cyclone is about to hit Mumbai today. It’s been reported that after a long time Mumbai is seeing something like this and some necessary measurements are being taken by the authorities. As per the reports, all the flights which are or were about to land on Mumbai or fly from Mumbai are cancelled by the IndiGo.
A recent report suggesting that the airlines are taking important steps to avoid any kind of incident. So we have news that around 17 flights which were supposed to fly today from or land on Mumbai are cancelled. The refund will be returned to the passengers after some time. As per updates, the airline will only operate three flights from Mumbai for June 3 and they will be the important ones.
The three flights which will fly operate today are 6E 495 Mumbai- Chandigarh, 6E 6179 Mumbai – Ranchi and 6E 5373 Mumbai –Patna. The cyclone started to show its impact on the dream city. To prevent any kind of injury the government said no to vehicular movement on the Bandra-Worli Sea. The Mumbai Police, NDRF teams, and many other government workers are steady to work in this current situation.
The flights got cancelled after Indian aviation regulator DGCA issued a fresh circular to airlines and pilots. The reports are coming that it is luckily expected that the flights will resume as previously after the 3rd June 2020 though we can expect a bit more delays on cancellation on 4th June 2020 too but nothing is confirmed yet. The IMD reported that the cyclone is expected to cross north Maharashtra and the south Gujarat coasts late Wednesday evening.
The DSCA confirmed, “Domestic aviation activities have recently been started after a period of two months. Operators and individuals have a challenge at hand in restarting flying after a prolonged period of non-flying and the associated weather at this time of the year across India.”
The Mumbai airport was handling around 50 flights in a day since 25th May 2020. Now today only 3 flights are permitted to take off and land on the airport. Now, we are expecting that the Nisarga Cyclone’s impact will reduce in a day or two and the flights will resume again.
