There are 53 airports in the country, according to the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal. Only 33 of them are in operation, but that is a different story.

Meanwhile, the number of aeroplanes in operation has been restricted to just 52, which is one less than the number of domestic airports including nominal ones.
