<p>Both local and foreign airlines that were scheduled to land at Chennai Airport have had their planes diverted. The customers have already been informed by all airlines of the diversions due to the devastating effect of Hurricane Michaung on Monday.</p>
<p>Due to the severe weather in the area, flights from Bengaluru to Chennai, Tirupati, and Vijayawada were delayed and some of them were canceled. “Scheduled departures from BLR Airport to Chennai (MAA), Tirupati (TIR), and Vijayawada (VGA) are experiencing delays or cancellations due to adverse weather conditions in the region and the temporary closure for arrival operations at Chennai Airport on December 4, 2023,” the Bengaluru airport management said in an announcement.
