COVID-19 Crisis Management Committee Proposes to Open Domestic Flights
Kathmandu- The Covid-19 Crisis Management Committee (CCMC) has proposed to open domestic flights from June 15.
The proposal, prepared by the CCMC and submitted to a high-level political authority, states that the air service will be opened with 40 percent passengers of the total capacity.
This proposal will be implemented only after the committee discusses and approves it by the Council of Ministers. If a decision is made as per the proposal, domestic flights will start flying from June 15, but only 40 percent of passengers of the total capacity will be able to fly. According to the rules, a ship with a capacity of 72 seats can carry only 28 passengers at a time.
However, the airlines have been reacting that it is not possible to fly a plane with limited capacity. The Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) has already prepared guidelines for passengers and airlines to follow after the flight opens.
