The government has planned to construct three advanced terminal buildings in three domestic airports of the country. 

According to the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN), Biratnagar, Nepalgunj, and Bharatpur airports have been chosen for terminal construction within the current fiscal year. These airports continue to remain the regional hub airports in the country.   

CAAN’s Officiating Deputy Director and Spokesperson Jagannath Niraula said that CAAN issued a notice on Wednesday to select the contractors for the projects. 

According to Niraula, terminal buildings in the airports data back to over 50 years. The movement of passengers has also increased. 

The projects will be implemented under the multi-year – three years to be precise – programme. The new structures will have conveyor belts too. 

Of three international airports: Tribhuvan International Airport and the Gautam Buddha Airport are operational and the Pokhara International Airport will come into operation from January 1, 2023.
