The respective airlines’ official will be taking responsibilities for distribution of reasonable air tickets for passengers opting to travel from Nepalgunj airport to entire sector of Karnali district.
According to Airport officials, the airlines will distribute the ticket in order to control the unfair air ticket price charged by the agencies.
Previously, the ticket distribution responsibilities were given to society serving organization which resulted haphazard ticket price allocation.
Civil Aviation Authority Nepal (CAAN) has issued a letter to distribute tickets by giving more priority to the sick, disabled and students and has also requested passengers to buy tickets from the respective airline companies.
Tara Air, Summit Air and Sita Air have been conducting one schedule flight in a week whereas Nepal Airlines Corporation (NAC) has been conducting two schedule flights in a week in the Karnali zone.
Most of the schedule flights have been delayed due to the priority given to the chartered flights. For chartered flight from Nepalgunj, two-way fare is charged.
