Srinagar: Air traffic to and fro Srinagar international airport resumed on Tuesday, a day after poor visibility and continuous snowfall forced the cancellation of all 68 scheduled flights.

Earlier, the Director of the Airport Authority of India (AAI), Srinagar Airport, Kuldeep Singh said that the visibility is good and the surface stands clear of snow for smooth arrival and departure of the flights.

Meanwhile, the train services from Banihal to Baramulla and vice versa resumed this morning after a day-long suspension on Monday last due to snowfall.

However, the Jammu-Srinagar highway, the only surface link connecting Kashmir Valley with the outside world, remained closed.

“People are advised not to take any journey on the Srinagar-Jammu highway till the restoration work is completed,’ a traffic department official here said.
