Flight operations cripples at Lucknow airport due to Technical snag.

Air traffic was hit at the Chowdhary Charan Singh International
Airport here on Saturday after a radar facilitating take off and landing
of aircrafts developed a technical snag, officials said. 

An
official at the airport told IANS that a DVOR (Doppler Very High Omni
Range) suddenly shut down leading to complete chaos at the airport.
Because of the technical snag no planes were able to land or take off
after 5.20 p.m.

So far, almost 16 flights have been affected due to the Radar DVOR failure which was reported at 4:30 pm today.

Aviation engineers have been requisitioned, said sources, but added
that the snag will take anything between 24-48 hours to be rectified.
The Airports Authority of India (AAI) has since suspended all operations
at the Amausi airport till further orders.

The development is set
to create a lot of problems to fliers between Lucknow-Delhi, Mumbai,
Bengaluru and some other international routes like Thailand and
Singapore.
