The Airlines Operators Association of Nepal has warned that all domestic flights will be shut down if the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) schedules domestic flights past 8 pm from tomorrow (Friday).

The authority had written a letter to the domestic airlines operating regular flights on Wednesday, informing them of the new flight schedule.

However, there are technical problems in implementing the flights as per the schedule, said Yograj Kandel, spokesperson of the Airline Operators Association. According to Kandel, it is not possible to implement regular flights after 8 pm in the current situation.

According to the association, the decision of CAAN could not be accepted as flights after 8 pm are too risky.

According to a statement issued by the association, the airlines will not be able to fly according to the new slot and the entire flight will be postponed until the amendment is made. All the private sector companies are members of the association.
