Civil Aviation Minister assures of effective air service

Inaugurating the 16th anniversary of International Mountaineering Museum in Pokhara on Tuesday, Minister Adhikari underscored that the air service should be made easy and accessible in the changed context.
He also said the government was planning to launch night time flights to Janakapur as in Dhangadhi, Bhairahawa, Nepalgunj, Simara and Biratnagar.
