KATHMANDU: The Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) has suspended the licence of Captain of Nepal Airlines Corporation Vijaya Lama.

Captain Lama faced action as his clarification relating to the cancellation of NAC's ready-to-take-off night flight to Dubai, on April 2, was not satisfactory, said a CAAN official.

"As per CAAN's rules, a pilot should undergo a health checkup. But he (Lama) did not report about his health condition to the CAAN. His clarifications are not satisfactory. He cannot fly an aircraft until he continues his job as NAC's spokesperson," said the official.
