New Delhi: More than 40 incoming flights were diverted from the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) here on Sunday evening following a powerful dust storm and rains, officials said.

An IGIA official said the diversions took place between 4.15 p.m. and 6.30 p.m.

"More than 40 flights have been diverted and some outbound flights have been delayed as well due to the weather," the official told IANS.

The official cited poor visibility and strong winds for the disruption in operations.

A dust storm with wind speeds of up to 70 km per hour hit the capital and neighbouring areas, seriously disrupting road traffic and Metro services.
