Dense fog has disrupted flights operation at Karachi Airport on Thursday morning delaying landings and departures of the planes, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Qatar Airways flight from Doha was scheduled to land at Karachi’s Jinnah International Airport at 6.50am but could not touch down due to heavy fog. The flight QR-610 returned to Doha after it was not cleared to land in heavy foggy conditions.

Unusual fog in Karachi also affected commutes in some parts of the megacity. Different areas of the city were engulfed in dense fog Thursday morning, affecting the flow of traffic. 

The fog made life difficult for the commuters travelling to offices and schools.

The city’s Orangi Town, Malir, North Nazimabad and surrounding areas were engulfed with heavy fog. Traffic on Super Highway Link Road and in nearby areas was also affected due to low visibility. 

The Met Office has predicted dry weather in most parts of Sindh. “Shallow fog/smog is likely to prevail over Sukkur and surrounding areas during the morning hours,” it added.
