14 Flights Diverted to Hyderabad from Mumbai Due to Heavy Rains

Hyderabad: On July 8, severe rains in Mumbai led to the diversion of 14 flights to Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA). These included ten international flights from Doha, the UAE, Muscat, Colombo, Phuket, Addis Ababa, and Azerbaijan, as well as four domestic flights from Jaipur, Cochin, Goa, and Nagpur. Overall, 27 flights were diverted from Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSIA) to nearby airports including Ahmedabad and Indore, with many delays and 51 cancellations due to heavy rain and low visibility.

At least 27 flights were diverted and 51 services were canceled at Mumbai airport on Monday due to heavy rain in the financial capital, sources reported. “Heavy rain and low visibility caused the suspension of runway operations from 2:22 AM to 3:40 AM on Monday,” a source said, noting that flights were rerouted to cities including Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, and Indore.

Mumbai, handling approximately 870 daily flights, saw runway operations suspended briefly early Monday. The airport, managed by MIAL, provided additional support to affected passengers. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) predicted continued heavy rains, issuing a yellow alert. The severe weather has disrupted public life and impacted airport infrastructure, including a recent roof collapse at Delhi International Airport, which prompted the Ministry of Civil Aviation to conduct structural inspections nationwide.
