KATHMANDU — Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation Rabindra Adhikari has said that the Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA), the only international airport in the country, would be operated for 21 hours daily.
In an interaction organized by the Nepal Tourism Infrastructure Development Council here in the Ministry on Tuesday, Minister Adhikari shared that the Ministry was preparing to operate the TIA for 21 hours daily from upcoming mid-May.
