Commercial flight operations resumed today at the Chennai airport that was shut on Tuesday (Dec.1) evening due to excessive water-logging. As the flood crisis in the Tamil Nadu capital eased after days of torrential rain, train services also resumed this morning after being halted for four days.

Yesterday, the airport was opened for flights carrying relief supplies for the rain-hit state. The Airports Authority of India (AAI) had declared the runway fit for operating technical ferry and relief flights after inspection by its staff.

A total 34 aircraft of various airlines were stranded at the airport when the Airports Authority of India (AAI) decided to shut the airport till December 6 after incessant rain inundated the runway.

On an average, Chennai airport handles 320 landings and take-offs in a day, including international flights.
