The main runway at Mumbai airport remains closed today after a SpiceJet flight overshot its mark while landing amid heavy rainfall at around 11.45 pm yesterday. The SpiceJet incident, coupled with heavy overnight rainfall, forced as many as 54 flights to be diverted to nearby airports like Ahmedabad, Goa and Bengaluru. A further 52 flights were cancelled.
SpiceJet and Indigo have also tweeted, warning passengers that the rains in Mumbai could affect departures and arrivals. Both airlines have asked passengers to check for delays and cancellations of flights before leaving for the airport.
