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 runway to remain open when visibility dips. We make such a big deal about tourism and 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 by GNS, at least 34 flights to and fro the airport here have already been cancelled due to poor visibility amid rains and snowfall in Kashmir Valley.

“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 and out from the valley in winter is not a pleasant experience.” Omar said in another tweet. (GNS)
