Domestic flights to operate on a market share basis from September 21

The Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) has been ordered by the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation should allow the domestic flight by September 21, 2020. Domestic flights are expected to begin on September 21. The ministry instructed the flights to proceed by authorizing the scheduled flight based mostly on airlines’ market dominance.

From the 21st, the flight schedule will have to be authorized for one month, meaning that only 25 percent of the flights that take place before the suspension will get approved. Whenever that happens, airlines are given flight schedules based on their market share.

Nepal Airlines’ int’l market share expected to rise with 5 aircraft in operation

The government had earlier planned to fly only half of the aircraft seats, but the ministry agreed to encourage the airlines to travel at maximum capacity while retaining physical distance. Airlines have said commercial travel with half of the seats occupied is not realistic.

Before receiving a boarding pass for domestic air travel, travelers must fill out a health statement form. The completed form must be addressed to the carrier with which you are flying. The CAAN will release a public notice concerning the guidelines to be observed by travelers.

In order to avoid excessive confusion at the airport, airlines would have to notify passengers via SMS of flight delays due to weather, operational or other causes.

Every traveler must wear a face mask. CAAN will be able to adjust the timetable for flights from October 1.
