Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation Prem Bahadur Ale has said that shuttle bus service will be operated at domestic and international airports.
Speaking at the inauguration ceremony of the 36th meeting of the Pragya Sabha of Nepal Pragya Pratisthan on Sunday, Minister Ale said that shuttle bus service would be operated at internal and external airports. He said four shuttle buses would now be operated free of cost at the airport after passengers complained of higher taxi fares than the plane.
“Due to complaints that taxis are more expensive than airplanes, we are now operating four shuttle buses at domestic and international airports, and the Nepal Civil Aviation Authority is operating a free shuttle bus service.
Similarly, when I visited Delhi on the 26th of this month, I also requested to make the western route Lima-626, which connects Nepal with India and other Middle Eastern and Western countries, two-way. Similarly, Bhairahawa International Airport will be inaugurated soon by the Prime Minister.”
Minister Ale also directed to construct rest houses for the workers at the airport. He also called on the Indian counterpart to make the western route Lima-626, which connects Nepal with India, the Middle East and the West, two-way.
