An international flight - an Emirates flight from Dubai to Delhi - has been diverted to Ahmedabad, sources said.
IndiGo tweeted that due to the bad weather in Delhi, departures and arrivals of flights at Delhi Airport were affected.Bad weather in Delhi (DEL) could affect all departures/arrivals and their follow-up flights tweeted another airline. 

“Due to waterlogging on account of heavy rains in Delhi, traffic congestion is expected. Customers travelling are advised to allow more time for their journey to the airport. Thank you!," tweeted Vistara.


Delhi Airport announced on Twitter that there was momentary congestion in the forecourt. "Our team immediately focused on treatment and the problem was solved." According to the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), Delhi will "experience mostly cloudy skies, heavy rainfall/thunderstorms, very heavy rainfall in isolated places at night". 

According to the civil authorities, there are other routes besides Moti Bagh and RK Puram such as Madhu Vihar, Hari Nagar, Rohtak Road, Badarpur, Som Vihar, Ring Road near IP station, Vikas Marg, Sangam Vihar, Mehrauli -Badarpur Road, Pul Prahladpur underpass, Munirka, Rajpur Khurd, Nangloi and Kirari also experienced water logging.

In a Twitter video reportedly showing swampy roads in Madhu Vihar, some DTC cluster buses stood in the water and other commuters manoeuvred their vehicles on the flooded road. Public Works officials (PWD) said the submissive workers were ready to pump water through the streets.

"Due to heavy rain in the early morning (on Saturday), water logging occurred at a number of places. We are tackling those issues on priority. Our staff is present round the clock to monitor the situation," a PWD official said.
