Night flight to be started at Janakpur airport

The night flight operations will be started at Janakpur Airport.

According to the airport officials, the technical equipment and devices required for night flight are being prepared.

It is reported that all work from checking lights and other devices are carried out whereas 200 trees are left to cut down out of 400 outside of airport zone area.

With the commencement of night flight at Janakpur airport, 400 passengers are expected to get services daily.

Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) has set up X-Ray machine for security check at the airport.

Previously, Honorable Prime Minister Mr. K.P Sharma Oli inaugurated the night flight of Chandragadhi Airport Jhapa on 31st January. PM Oli took the first flight from Chandragadhi airport to Tribhuvan International airport to formally inaugurate and operate the night flight from the airport.

After Janakpur Airport features night flight operation, it will play a great role to cope with the growing air traffic management due to high flow of passengers and flight frequency.

Janakpur Airport which started its operation from 1960 still lacks adequate, efficient airport infrastructures and security for air passengers and the air port still lacks ambulance services for emergency purpose.
