Himalaya Airlines begins chartered flight from Bhairahawa

KATHMANDU: At a time when the Bhairahawa-based Gautam Buddha International Airport has failed to make a good business, the Himalaya Airlines has started a chartered flight for Kuala Lumpur from the newly-constructed airport.

The Himalaya Airlines began the chartered flight after the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) imposed a compulsory provision that the airline companies operating three international flights from the Tribhuvan International Airport daily should run the service from Bhairahawa if the number of flights exceeds three.

Vice Chairman of the Airlines Vijaya Shrestha said the Himalaya Airlines would daily and regularly operate the chartered flight services. “Operation of chartered flight now is to sense the market situation. We will get into regular flight service in the near future”.

Shrestha said the Airlines would also take the ownership of the Gautam Buddha International Airport as it was the national pride project with investment of entire Nepali people.

The Airport was eligible for operating flights in its probation time, he said now regular flights can be made to and from the airport.

CAAN Director General Pradeep Adhikari said the technical problems that surfaced in the airport have been resolved so that international flight service can be operated from the airport. RSS
