Chennai Airport resumes operation after brief Cyclone Michaung shutdown

Chennai Airport has resumed its operations following a temporary shutdown due to heavy rainfall caused by Cyclone Michaung. The airport management reported that the rains have ceased, and the water levels have receded.
All communication, navigation, surveillance (CNS), and air traffic management facilities are functioning normally. Airlines and other stakeholders have been informed to plan their operations accordingly. The air traffic management (ATM) will give priority to departures to facilitate the clearance of stranded passengers at the airport.
A total of 21 aircraft were on the ground with around 1500 passengers in the terminals before the resumption of operations.
The heavy rainfall triggered by Cyclone Michaung brought the city to a standstill and at least eight deaths were reported in rain-related incidents. Several areas of the city were submerged in knee-deep water and power outages were reported across Chennai since Monday morning. Schools, colleges, offices and banks were also closed on Monday and Tuesday in at least four districts of Tamil Nadu, including Chennai.
