Nepal waives charges to woo int’l flights to new airport

Nepal has decided to waive several charges for one year for international airlines conducting flights to the country’s newly-opened Gautam Buddha International Airport.

The decision by the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) on a 100-percent waiver of charges, including for landing, parking, communication, navigation aid and security check, will be effective from May 28.

“We granted a waiver of fees as part of marketing of the new international airport to woo international airlines to operate their flights in this new airport,” Deo Chandra Lal Karn, CAAN’s spokesperson, told Xinhua on Tuesday.

“By operating international flights, an international airline can get a waiver of fees of around 2,000 U.S. dollars per flight,” he added.
