Since the weather in the mountainous region is quite unpredictable there may be a chance of flight cancellations or delays. But that does not mean it is frequent.

However, during the best trekking seasons (spring and autumn) the chances of flight cancellation and delay are comparatively lesser than in off seasons (monsoon and winter).
