"At least 60 international and domestic flights have been affected in Lahore and some other cities of Punjab since last week. Despite rescheduling flights, the dense smog or fog is hampering the operations of both Pakistan International Airlines and foreign airlines," said PIA Lahore spokesman Athar Awan.

He said that foreign airlines have rescheduled their operations in the morning, but still the flights are delayed or cancelled because of smog.
