POKHARA: The Pokhara Regional International Airport will officially come into operation on January 1, 2023.
A meeting of the board of directors of the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) took a decision to this effect, said CAAN Spokesperson Jagannath Niraula.
The approximately 22 billion-project has seen the completion of 98 percent of construction works so far, he said, adding that a flight calibration would take place in coming October.
The project that directly connects the major tourist destination, Pokhara, with the globe through international flights spans over 200 hectares of land.
