New Delhi, February 13: With several flight operations delayed on Tuesday due to low visibility amid fog, Delhi's IGI Airport has issued advisory for passengers.

CAT III in aviation is a type of instrument landing system (ILS) approach that allows for landing in very low visibility conditions, such as fog, rain, or snow. According to India Meteorological Department visibility fell rapidly from 800m to 150m over some parts of Delhi.

"Fog conditions observed (at 0530 hours IST of today): Dense fog in isolated pockets of Punjab and Odisha; Moderate fog in isolated pockets of East Madhya Pradesh and shallow fog in isolated pockets of Delhi, Bihar and Coastal Andhra Pradesh and Yanam," IMD posted on X.
