TSG recommends Kavre’s Nagidanda for domestic airport construction

Gorkha Post



KATHMANDU — The Technical Study Group (TSG) has recommended the construction of a domestic airport in Nagidanda of Kavre as an alternative to the domestic section at TIA.

The Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation (MoCTCA) has formed TSG almost a month ago — which comprises aviation experts — to suggest the government on possible ways to address air traffic congestion at the Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA).

Submitting its study report to the government, TSG suggested the construction of a domestic airport at Nagidanda or Chisapani Thulichaur of Kavre, but termed Nagidanda as ‘comparatively more feasible’.

“Nagidanda site is the best among different indicated sites for the construction of a domestic airport to manage congestion at TIA,” the report reads.

The TSG report has stated that construction and operation of a domestic airport in Nagidanda will reduce almost 20 per cent traffic load at TIA.

Similarly, 20 per cent communication load of air traffic control (ATC) at TIA will be reduced if helicopter operation from TIA is shifted to the yet-to-be-constructed domestic airport at Nagidanda.

Operation of airport in Nagidanda will also reduce the frequency congestion on Kathmandu approach, TIA tower and TIA ground, the report stated.

“However, issues like metrological condition (wind and visibility) at Nagidanda, instrument flight procedure, air traffic management (ATM) procedure and safety assessment with respect to TIA must be addressed at the very beginning of the project cycle.” it added.
