Airlines Operators’ Association decides to shut down regular and rescue flights from tomorrow
KATHMANDU: The Airlines Operators’ Association of Nepal has decided to shut down regular and rescue flights from tomorrow putting forth various demands.
Organising a press conference in the Capital on Tuesday, the Association demanded that the government withdraw the decision to hike service charges and not to allow other aircrafts and helicopters based outside Kathmandu Valley to make flights from Kathmandu among others.
The Association Chairman Rameshwor Thapa said that they were compelled to take his step after the government decided not to allow the aircrafts and helicopters based outside the Valley to make flights from Kathmandu.
“Though we have no intention to shut down essential services, the government’s decision forced us to take this move,” he said.
He said that the government should provide space for the construction of physical infrastructures like hanger among others.
