KATHMANDU: Domestic flights at Tribhuvan International Airport have been affected for the past four days due to bad weather conditions, said the airport office.
However, international flights have been operating smoothly.
A number of domestic flights to their destinations like from TIA to Pokhara, Janakpur and Simara have been affected as a result of low visibility due to dense smog, including in the Kathmandu Valley, said General Manager at the airport Pratap Babu Tiwari. But, night flights have been operating.
As per the data shared by Tribhuvan International Airport, out of 112 domestic flights of different airlines scheduled on Wednesday, only 95 flights took place.
Twelve flights were canceled and five were merged. A total of 9,824 people traveled by these flights.
Similarly, out of 118 domestic flights scheduled for Tuesday, only 88 flights were made. Likewise, 30 flights were canceled on Monday.
A total of 122 flights were scheduled on the same day where only 91 took place.
Although the weather remained hazy for three days, the sky in Kathmandu is comparatively clear today.
TIA general manager Tiwari said the visibility is also good in the absence of thick haze and the flights were operating regularly.
According to him, flights are operating regularly from airports across the country, except Pokhara. Flights could not be operated to and from Pokhara for the last three days and this has caused inconvenience to the passengers.
