Bengaluru: Flight Services Disrupted Due To Heavy Rainfall Leading To Diversions To Chennai

Bengaluru’s aircraft services were disrupted by heavy overnight rain, according to Kempegowda International Airport officials on Friday.

They said that a number of flights, including foreign passenger flights, had been diverted. A BIAL representative stated in a statement that “strong winds and heavy rainfall made the airport unusable for landing between 9.35 pm and 10.29 pm, causing flight diversions.”

According to him, on Thursday, 13 domestic flights, 3 international passenger flights, and 1 international cargo flight were rerouted to Chennai. Numerous trees were brought down in various sections of the city, including Jayanagar, Nrupathunga Nagar, and RR Nagar, by the rain and high winds.

The intense summer heat that Bengaluru residents had not experienced in many decades was also relieved for them by the rains. For the previous four days, rain has been falling on the city.

The India Meteorological Department reports that Bengaluru saw 14 mm of rain in the 24 hours leading up to 8:30 am on Friday. In a statement, it stated that over the previous 24 hours, the city’s top and lowest temperatures were 33 and 22 degrees Celsius, respectively.
