Yogesh Bhattarai, Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation while presenting the annual progress report has said that the dollar fare imposed on domestic flights will be removed. Minister further informed that the decision would be taken only after discussing the recommendation of the committee and the airline operators.
In this regards, airlines operators have a different argument as they believe it will increase airfare for Nepali passengers. Rights decision will be taken later after a good discussion with concern authorities that matter in domestic air travel and tourism.
