Kathmandu, October 12
Three airports in hilly districts of Sudurpaschim are resuming their operation after around 25 years.
Summit Air is flying to the airports in Doti, Baitadi and Bajhang starting this week. The company will conduct two flights every week to Bajhang and one flight every week to each of Doti and Baitadi from Dhangadhi.
The company says flights to Bajhang are scheduled for Tuesdays and Fridays, to Baitadi are scheduled for Tuesdays, and to Doti are scheduled for Fridays.
Until the mid-1990s, the national flag carrier, Nepal Airlines Corporation, was conducting regular flights to these airports.
It has been learned that the newly scheduled flights will target domestic tourists.
