CAAN urges for not flying kite, drone near airport

2023 Sep 23, 7:13, Kathmandu

The Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) has urged one and all not to fly kite, drone and balloon around the Tribhuvan International Airport.

CAAN Spokesperson and Deputy Director General, Jagannath Niraula, said cases of flying kites, drones and balloons in the airport vicinity have been reported despite a prohibition for the same, posing a severe threat to aviation safety. The situation has prompted the aviation regulating body to urge all to not repeat such acts any more.

  The risk is potentially high during the Dashain and Tihar as these festivals are marked by kite and balloons flying.

The CAAN issued a public notice on Friday asking for no activities that affect the flight safety, and warned of action if the request was violated.
