While the economic activities are in dismay due to the COVID-19 lockdown, the Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) is being renovated to resume flight operations soon.
Dev Chandra Lal Karna, spokesperson for TIA said, “TIA management has improved the facilities of both domestic and international terminals to help maintain social distancing and hygiene at the airport. After claiming their baggage at the international terminal, passengers will be able to walk directly to the parking area through a new covered walkway. Arrival walkway and parking areas will have restaurants and other facilities. After a few months, a new entry for the arriving passengers will be introduced with health desk facilities.”
Health safety measures for all activities, including boarding, managing passengers and security checking processes will be implemented as per the news guidelines set by the government. And the social distancing will be while boarding passengers and seating in the aircraft.
Let’s have a look at the features of our new feature to TIA:
Though in no time country will be able to welcome to the tourist, the deadly virus has ruined the plan of the nation’s ambitious ‘Visit Nepal Year 2020’ campaign. The campaign aimed to attract over 2 million foreign tourists which is double from 2019. However, the Nepali Government will plan to reinstate the tourism arrival into the country after the pandemic is over. Finance Minister Dr. Yubraj Khatiwada, the government is forecasting to attract over 2.5 million foreign tourists by 2025. The tourism sector will come with a plan to promote Nepal in the global arena while stabilizing natural, cultural, and artificial heritages to attract tourists.
