Govt forms committee to investigate overcharging on international flights

Kathmandu: Despite the declining rate of corona infections and widespread vaccination campaigns abroad, the government has stopped regular international flights and encouraged chartered flights.

Taking advantage of this opportunity, the government has formed an investigation committee after complaints from some travel agencies that passengers were being charged exorbitant fares.

According to ministry spokesperson Taranath Adhikari, a five-member investigation committee has been formed under the leadership of Director General of the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal Rajan Pokhrel.

He said that a committee has been formed to investigate the complaint and recommend necessary legal action to the concerned body.

Fights were open in India even before this. The government, which has suspended regular flights for a long time, has not been able to take concrete steps to control the epidemic in Nepal.
