Srinagar- Former Chief Minister and National Conference vice president Omar Abdullah on Tuesday scoffed at cancellation of flights due to poor visibility at Srinagar international airport.
“Our “international airport” has no landing aids that enable the runway to remain open when visibility dips. We make such a big deal about tourism & investment promotion now imagine the plight of those tourists who’ve sat all day outside the terminal watched their flights get cancelled,” Omar tweeted
As reported at least 42 flights to and fro the airport here were cancelled due to poor visibility amid rains and snowfall.
“Not to mention the locals who will have their tickets cancelled & be told to buy fresh ones with fares that touch the stratosphere. Travel in to & out from the valley in winter is not a pleasant experience.” Omar said in another tweet.
