Importing technical experts from abroad still a challenge as no international flights are in operation



The ongoing construction of physical infrastructure of Bhairahawa-based Gautam Buddha International Airport, a national pride project, has been almost completed. The only remaining work to be fixed at the airport includes installing lights and equipment.

With this, the airport has witnessed 92 percent physical progress and 63 percent financial progress. Had there been no COVID-19 pandemic the airport would have come to its final stage for operating commercial flights.

The technical works of the project construction has been delayed at the airport due to COVID-19. However, other physical works did not let up amidst the lockdown.

Project Chief of the International Airport, Prabesh Adhikari, said the technical work was very challenging. Though most of the equipment has already arrived the challenge lies in importing technical human resource from abroad as no international flights are in operation, he added.

The task of devising equipment inside the terminal building of the airport is yet to be done. Fixing baggage handling, passenger security screening machine and air condition are still in process.

Making public the annual progress report recently, Minster for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation Yogesh Bhattarai said the airport construction is gaining momentum and necessary efforts are underway to expedite remaining work in the airport.
