Kathmandu, February 8
The Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) has pressed airlines not paying dues amounting millions of rupees for many years to pay them within 30 days.
Issuing a public notice today, the civil aviation regulatory body of the country urged the airlines to pay the pending service charges and royalties to it and the airport office.
According to CAAN, 11 airlines operating the domestic flights have suspended their flight now as they have dues of Rs 90 million yet to pay.
The authority says it directed the airline companies to pay the dues as they failed to do so despite notifying them about the same from time to time.
These airlines have been asked to pay the due amount as well as the delay charge within 30 days from the publication of its latest notice to this effect.
CAAN has warned that the proprietors of airlines failing to clear the dues and settle the account within the deadline would be blacklisted and they would not be eligible for any business activities and transactions related to airlines services in the future.
Necon, Cosmic, Shivani, Karnali, Mountain, Shangrila, Skyline, Kashthamandap, Nepal Airways, and Alpine among other companies have not paid applicable fees.
