Speaking about the issue, Airport Director PK Srivastava said, "A team of engineers is trying to resolve the technical snag in the radar DVOR. We are taking help from Kanpur and Delhi officials to replace the impaired part in the radar. The problem is expected to be resolved by late night."

It has been reported that the airport was having signal problems for the past three days. On Saturday, a technical team was trying to fix the problem which brought some moisture in the panel of the radar DVOR and it stopped functioning.

Around 13 flights coming from Mumbai have been diverted while the landing of over half a dozen flights have been delayed, said the sources. After a ruckus created by the passengers, they were shifted to the waiting rooms with assurance that the problem will be resolved soon.
