N24 Correspondent, KATHMANDU:- Nepal’s domestic flights, which were suspended for epidemic control, have resumed operations after a two-month hiatus. The Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN), the regulator, has made a flight schedule to operate 64 daily flights of domestic airlines. The government had imposed a curfew on April 29 to control the epidemic. Domestic flights were suspended from April 6 and international flights from April 8.

Assessing the current state of transition in the event of regular flights being suspended at Tribhuvan International Airport, the flight schedule has been given at 10-minute intervals based on the number of flights operated by the airline before the ban.

According to the general manager of the airport, Pratap Babu Tiwari, 31 flights have been sanctioned to Buddha Air, 15 to Yeti Airlines, seven to Shree Airlines, three to Saurya Airlines, and three each to Stock.

The airport will effectively adhere to the health standards issued by the Government of Nepal and the airport for the safe movement of passengers, taking into account the current risk of the Kovid-19 epidemic. A supervision committee has also been formed for this.

Leading domestic carriers Buddha Air, Yeti Airlines, Shree Airlines, Saurya Air, and others have stated that they are engaged in non-transit flights by strictly adhering to public health standards.

The Ministry of Culture, Tourism, and Civil Aviation had instructed CAN to operate domestic flights without increasing the total number of flights by 50 percent from July 3 until further orders.
