Kathmandu, November 30, 2015: Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, Ananda Pokharel, has said that international airport should not be made merely a site for profit making.
During his visit to the Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) for monitoring, Minister Pokharel stressed that services at the country’s only international airport should be made effective instead of making it the place for earning profit.
He said, “All bodies concerned should be committed to make the TIA a highly prestigious place by considering that the TIA is a base of country’s glory, prestige and prosperity.”
The Tourism Minister expressed the view that it would be more effective if the system of disseminating information about Nepal to the foreigners by the taxi drivers themselves was brought into practice.
Similarly, Secretary at the Ministry, Dinesh Thapaliya, urged the bodies concerned to unveil the reforms of the TIA.
Likewise, TIA Director General Sanjeev Gautam said that quality services could be given if works were carried out by coordinating with each other.
