Delhi: Radar failure at IGI Airport, several flights delayed

New Delhi: A radar failure at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport in the capital led to the radar screens going blank leading to delay in several flights. The scheduling of the flights will have to be done manually till the error is rectified.

The airport saw similar radar failures in 2012 and in 2010. These radar screens give complete details of aircraft flying in the vast north Indian plain and raises concerns over the country's airspace security being compromised.

Airport authorities, uncertain about the cause behind the failure, called it a technical issue. More details are awaited.
