Dubai airport flights delayed due to rain
Dubai International, one of the world’s busiest airports, canceled, diverted and delayed flights on Saturday due to heavy rain and flooding, Reuters reports with a reference to Dubai Airports.
Flights are likely to be delayed throughout the day and some have been canceled or diverted to nearby Al Maktoum airport, state-owned Dubai Airports said on Twitter.
Video footage and images posted on social media showed part of the airport’s runway area submerged under water. Reuters could not immediately verify the footage.
