India To Help Nepal Build New Hangars At The Kathmandu Airport


The government has directed Airports Authority of India (AAI) to help Nepal build new and upgrade exisiting hangars at the Kathmandu airport. It is also considering allowing Nepalese airlines on new routes into India.

The moves are aimed at countering China’s growing influence in the Himalayan country. “AAI has started work on it and sought a detailed project report from the Nepalese side,” an aviation ministry official told ET on condition of anonymity.

“We have been asked to urgently clear these requests and the ministry working on them.” The request was sent by the Indian embassy in Nepal and included request to allow a Nepalese carrier, Buddha Air, to be provided new routes to India, which is also being discussed. AAI chairman Guruprasad Mohapatra did not comment on the story. If this goes through, it will not be the first time India will be asking AAI to counter China. Read more
