Adverse weather affects flights

Air flights in the country have been generally affected due to the adverse weather.

According to Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA), both domestic and international flights have been affected due to poor visibility.

Airport spokesperson Subas Jha said that some international flights were affected due to low visibility.

Jha said an Air China plane has been 'diverted' while other planes have been put on hold. Even now, the aircraft of Sichuan Airlines is on hold.

"The visibility of the airport is poor due to adverse weather. An hour ago, the visibility was only 1,600 meters, but now it is 2,500 meters. "International flights on hold have started to land gradually," said spokesman Jha. There are no domestic flights at Pokhara International Airport as well. However, regular flights are operating at airports in the Terai region.

At Tribhuvan International Airport, 30 airlines, including three Nepalis, are operating international flights.

Similarly, 20 air service providers including 12 helicopter companies are providing flight services at domestic level.
