Non-Resident Nepali Association (NRNA) is set to conduct cleaning campaign to enhance appearance of Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) and also to promote tourism. As been reported, the agreement between International Coordination Council (Executive body of NRNA) and authority of TIA has already been made.
The agreement focuses on decorating the TIA’s terminal with technological advancements and international standards. The one month long cleaning campaign is expected to start from June 29. Especially, NRNA is conducting the campaign to promote tourism and create awareness about the negative impact of filthy airport on tourists.
NRNA will dispatch Khem’s Cleaning Services (a cleaning company based in Sydney, Australia) for the campaign. Civil Aviation Authority from TIA will be managing all the resources for the campaign and the work will be carried out at night time under the surveillance of police personnel.
According to the TIA’s spokesperson Prem Nath Thakur, NRNA will conduct cleaning campaign from midnight (12:30) to around 5 in the morning. They will also train the laborers currently working at TIA’s cleaning department, he added.
This will probably be a huge initiation and source of awareness from NRNA as the country’s sole international airport is criticized of poor sanitation and services. Mainly, the campaign is focused on creating an attractive airport platform and NRNA is sure that it will boost the appearance of TIA hence, enhancing tourism.
