“Up to 11 am on Monday, 50 flights have been canceled at Mumbai airport due to low visibility and heavy rains. Out of this, IndiGo has had to cancel 42 flights, including 20 departure flights, while three of Air India’s six arrival flights have been cancelled,” a statement said. The source said.

Alliance Air, the state-owned airline, also had to cancel two flights on Monday, one departure, and one arrival, due to the challenging conditions. The airport had to suspend runway operations for a period, leading to around 27 flights being diverted to nearby cities like Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, and Indore. The rainfall in Mumbai has been quite intense, with the island city receiving an average of 115.36 mm, while the east and west parts got even more rain.

Govandi in East Mumbai and Powai received some of the highest amounts of rain, followed by Malpa Dongri in Andheri and Chakala. Even in the island city, areas like Pratiksha Nagar and Shivdi Koliwada experienced significant rainfall.

The weather has been really making its presence known all around the city with those intense rainfall numbers in different areas.
