Bhadrapur Airport in Jhapa, which has been conducting internal flights in the country, started providing refuelling services to aircraft from yesterday.

Nepal Oil Corporation Executive Director Gopal Bahadur Khadka formally inaugurated the service amidst a function yesterday.

Aircraft service providing companies, that conduct flights to the district, have expressed relief over the launch of this service as they otherwise had to manage the necessary fuel from the capital.

Bhadrapur Airport Assistant Manager Gopal Prasad Ghimire expressed happiness saying that the airport, which was established five decades ago, succeeded in distributing fuel for the first time.
