"Five flights operated from the airport this (Saturday) afternoon with the resumption of air traffic. While three incoming flights landed, two flights which were halted on Friday were allowed to fly out," an official said. All flights to and from the Srinagar international airport were halted on Friday afternoon due to heavy snowfall.
