International Chartered Flights To Be Operated From GBIA Only

Now international chartered flights will take off at the newly constructed Gautam Buddha International Airport (GBIA) in Bhairahawa, the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) has decided.

Earlier, all international chartered flights took place at the Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA). The independent civil aviation regulator of the country resorted this move to bring GBIA into full operation, said CAAN Director General Pradip Adhikari. The airport officially came into operation from May 16.

However, diplomatic chartered flights and flights by cargo airlines and Army continue to be operated at TIA, he said. Similarly, one international flight in every three flights at the TIA will have to be operated from GBIA, according to a winter flight schedule that came into operation from October 30.

International flights have been already commenced from GBIA, earlier in May this year. However only only Jazeera Airways is running three flights a week at the GBIA at present.

To bring the airport at full operation, the CAAN has even directed three international airlines along with the Nepal Airlines Corporation, the national flag carrier, and the Himalaya Airlines to operate a flight a day each at the GBIA.
