Extremely heavy rainfall caused India’s Chennai Airport to shut down on December 4, 2024. The storm has led to around 1,000 flights across the state having to be canceled for safety reasons.

The bad weather was severe in the Indian east coast area. This is where Chennai Airport is located, which is now literally flooded. Videos posted by eyewitnesses on social media show that the water level has risen enormously and that commercial aircraft have also been affected.

Chennai Airport has been hit several times in the past by severe storms, which also resulted in flooding. According to local media reports, at least 21 aircraft on the apron were affected in the latest incident. The airport must be temporarily closed.

Not only this airport was affected by the adverse weather conditions, but around 1,000 flights across India had to be canceled for safety reasons. Indigo and Air India airlines were severely affected due to their size as broadcasters. If possible, aircraft that had already made themselves known in the air were redirected to other regions that were not affected or were significantly less affected by the storm.
