On Sunday, May 12, nine planes were diverted to Chennai due to heavy rain in Bengaluru, which caused disruptions to airport operations, as reported by Moneycontrol.

The company that runs Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru International Airport (BIAL), ascribed the diversions to the region’s intense downpour and lightning.

On May 12, no aircraft were able to land at Kempegowda between 11:18 and 11:54 p.m., a BIAL representative informed the newspaper. Four were foreign and seven were domestic planes out of the 11 that were diverted.

Air India (AI 512 from Delhi and AI 585 from Mumbai), Akasa Air (QP 1341 from Mumbai and QP 1397 from Goa), Air Asia India (I5821 from Guwahati), Alliance Air (9I548 from Goa), and Vistara (UK 807 from Delhi) were among the flights that were impacted.

Thai Airways (TG 325 from Bangkok), Thai Lion Air (SL 216 from Bangkok), Air France (AF 194 from Paris), and KLM (KL 879 from Amsterdam) were among the international planes that were diverted.

Following an improvement in the weather, BIAL stated that regular operations at Bengaluru airport resumed after midnight.

Waterlogging has been recorded in several areas of the city, including Roopena Agrahara near Electronic City and Bilekahalli near Bannerghatta Road, according to traffic police officers.

Water logging was also a result of heavy rains at Kempegowda International Airport, which is around 40 kilometers from the core business district in North Bengaluru, close to Devanahalli.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) forecasted strong rainfall, thunderstorms, and lightning for the city on May 10 and issued a yellow signal for the coming week.

For north interior Karnataka until May 13, the IMD forecasted mild to moderate rainfall, thunderstorms, lightning, and gusty winds. In addition, May 12 and 13 are predicted to bring significant rains to the southern interior of Karnataka.
