Dolpa, April 21: Flights at Jufal Airport in Dolpa have resumed after 53 days of closure. The airport was temporarily shut to upgrade the 185-metre-long runway which was completed at a cost of Rs 60 million including VAT, according to Civil Aviation Authority's engineer Bir Prasad Shahi.

This morning, a Tara Air flight from Nepalgunj landed at Jufal, marking the resumption of the services. Prior to this, the runway was in a dilapidated condition, posing a threat to travelers.
