Nepal’s domestic airlines have committed to operate flights to ensure precautionary measures against COVID-19.

The Air Operators Association of Nepal (AOAN) issued a press statement on Wednesday reiterating its commitment to continue working with the Ministry of Health and Population, the COVID-19 Crisis Management Committee and the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN).

The airline’s umbrella organization shared that private airlines are operating domestic flights after the second wave of COVID-19, providing measures to curb the spread of COVID-19.

According to CAAN’s flight schedule, private airlines have eight flights per hour. The statement also said that in terms of road connectivity, the airline is operating flights to various destinations at reasonable cost and in recent times road connectivity has faced problems due to natural disasters caused by monsoon.

According to the statement, the domestic airport in Kathmandu handles an average of more than 1,200 passengers to and from different destinations.
