Multiple Airports Unnecessary for Nepal, Says Tourism Minister
Culture, Tourism, and Civil Aviation Minister Sudan Kirati expressed his viewpoint that numerous airports are unnecessary for a small country like Nepal. He conveyed this statement during a meeting of the International Relations and Tourism Committee under the Federal Parliament, which took place at Singha Durbar on Tuesday.
Minister Kirati further informed that the Council of Ministers will promptly pass a crucial bill concerning air flight safety, which will then be submitted to the Parliament. He urged the Members of Parliament to expedite its approval.
