Rainwater gushed through the ceiling inside the passenger lounge area of Guwahati airport following heavy showers yesterday but no flight operations were affected, an airport official said today. The torrential downpour from 8.45 pm to 10 pm caused water to enter through the newly expanded canopy of the passenger lounge, P K Tailong, the manager of the Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport, told PTI.

“We had recently expanded the canopy and it was an initial teething problem. I was present there and it was immediately attended to,” Tailong said.

When asked whether the luggage x-ray screening machines were affected, the official said that no machinery was damaged. “All the scheduled flights operated as usual last night,” the airport manager said.
