The Biratnagar Airport, which was closed due to floods, has resumed operations this morning.
The airport came into operation after two days of equipment testing. The Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) had given permission to fly in the afternoon when the weather was clear. Accordingly, the flight has started this morning, said Civil Aviation Authority spokesperson Raj Kumar Chhetri.
The flight schedule will be from morning to 5 pm only. The night flight will not be available immediately as the equipment is yet to be checked.
According to NEA sources, for the time being, only VFR flights will be operated without IFR (equipment-based) flights.
Once the equipment is in good condition, the IFR will be flown. In the case of an IFR flight, a night flight is also possible.
