Delhi has been enveloped in a haze of smog since Monday night, as air quality across most parts of the national capital deteriorated to "severe" levels.
ANI news agency quoted a United spokesperson as saying "the airline is monitoring advisories as the region remains under a public health emergency, and are coordinating with respective government agencies".
Illegal crop-burning by farmers in the neighbouring states has been blamed as the main source of the hazardous pollution. It has also been ranked the 9th busiest airport in Asia and the 20th busiest in the world, and it has racked up awards in recent times for design and maintenance. Vehicle and industrial emissions make the air quality risky to lung and heart health-a 2015 study found that half of Delhi's 4.4 million schoolchildren have diminished lung capacity. Weather related issues are usually on top of the list, but even there, cancellations are mostly attributed to freak storms, rain, and wind.
Besides hampering visibility on road, the situation has become a public health emergency, and prompted schools to shut down in its wake.
