Rainfall, winds interrupt Istanbul Atatürk Airport flight schedule

Flights leaving and arriving at Istanbul Atatürk International Airport have suffered delays due to strong winds and heavy rains, Doğan News Agency reported late Dec. 17.

The rainfall and winds that have gathered speed since Dec. 17 have caused many flights to circle over the airport instead of landing.

Up to an hour of delays were also reported for flights in and out of Atatürk Airport.

Passengers who have missed their connecting flights due to the delays were placed in hotels and many were left outside of the airport to wait for taxis, or to be picked up at a time when road traffic also worsened.
