Chennai Airport's main runway will undergo intermittent closures during July and August.

The main runway will be closed during the afternoons on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays in July and August, says a source at Paramount Airways, which operates flights from the airport.

The closures will allow work on taxiways that connect to the runway, says the source.

During the closures flights will need to use the airport's second runway, says the source, adding that this may lead to some delays as the second runway is farther away from the airport terminal.
