Flights delayed at Allama Iqbal International Airport
LAHORE: Due to heavy smog in the city, more than 70 flights including both domestic and international were delayed at Allama Iqbal International Airport on Friday.
The flights were delayed for the fourth consecutive day and added to the inconvenience of many passengers and their relatives who then started at a protest at the airport. The protesters said that airport officials had told them that their flights would arrive and depart on time but when they reached the airport, the truth could not be further from what they had been told. They also blamed the administration’s lack of coordination with the airlines for making matters worse.
Lahore has been covered in smog since late October and the further delays are expected in arrival and departure of flights.
