Flights resume to, from Dolpa airport

DOLPA: Flight services to and from Juphal Airport in Dolpa district, which was closed indefinitely for last one week owing to thick smog, have resumed from today.

The thick smog had blanketed Dolpa, including the Airport here, since the last week of April, leading to the reduction in the visibility for the flight services.

The flight service is the only means of transport to the remote district.

With the resumption in the flight services, aircraft of two private airlines -Tara Airlines and Kasthamandap Airlines - flew to Dolpa today itself, according to Tara Airlines Dolpa Station.
