BHIMDUTTANAGAR: Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation Yogesh Kumar Bhattarai has said the government is working on a plan of re-operating airports which have remained closed due to various reasons.

In his address to a program on re-operation of Kanchanpur Airport organized by the Bhimdutta Municipality Office here today, the Minister shared about the government policy of reopening the shut airports instead of building new ones.

As he said, the government has invested a huge investment in the operation of airports and payback for the State was expected. He called for cooperation among the three-tier government to make the government policy materialized which would benefit local communities and local levels.

Speaking the need for airports to become self-sufficient, the Minister insisted that airports should follow international standards as per the demand of time.

He took the time to share about the government plan of re-operating Majhgaun Airport in Kanchanpur. “The airport keeps a meaning for the people of western Nepal and people’s representatives here are enthusiastically working for the reoperation plan.”
