SRINAGAR: Kashmir Valley on Monday was cut-off from the rest of the world as snowfall led to the closure of the vital Srinagar-Jammu highway, besides affecting air traffic.
An official said that due to continuous snowfall since morning, all flights to and from the Srinagar international airport have been cancelled.
He said that all flights to and from Srinagar airport were delayed in the morning and had to be finally cancelled because the runway clearance at the airport can only be started once it stops snowing.
“We had 68 sked flights today
All 68 flights were cancelled due to low visibility and continuous snowfall,” in a tweet Director Srinagar Airport Kuldeep Singh Rishi said.
