New Delhi: The heavy downpour in Begaluru on Monday brought the city airport to a standstill, the heavy rainfall caused a flood-like situation across several areas in the city, including the Kempegowda International Airport (KIAL).

The waterlogged roads made it near impossible for the passengers to reach the airport. As the roads were lined with cars stuck due to heavy water logging a tractor offered to ferry passengers. Many people took the opportunity to use the tractor as transport to the airport rather than miss their flight.

Many airport goers shared the clips on Twitter, as they were forced to sit on a tractor ride to ferry a ride to the airport to catch their flights.
