If you are a travel lover and a destination seeker then you must have heard of the poor Nepal Domestic Flights condition. There are a hundreds of flight crash cases in Nepal and many innocent people have lost their lives only because of the Nepal Aviation systemwith inferior quality. The plane crashes have made all the travellers think twice before booking the tickets. Due to these horrible air accidents in Nepal, the European Union (EU) had enlisted Nepal Aviation in its blacklist chart and banned all the airlines from Nepal entering European Space in December 2013.
Well, we are happy to let all of you know that officials from Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) and Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation (MoCTCA) have planned a formal meeting with the members of European Commission in Brussels, Belgium on 19th January. The officials will be proposing a report on progress made by Nepal in safety issues raised by EU. We have been informed that theofficials’ team attending the meet in Brussels will be of six members as led by CAAN’s Director Mr. SanjeevGautam and Secretary from MoCTCA.
The EU had updated its blacklist chart on 30th November in 2016 and unfortunately, Nepali Aviation has not been able convince the EU of its safety measurements. That is why; Nepal is once again enlisted in it. Although, CAAN had sent some progress report of Nepali Aviation to European Commission but Nepal is yet to remove its ban and uplift the security standards. The EC had issues in air operating certificate, training and licensing, aircraft accident investigation and CAAN’s institutional capacity. Hence, the CAAN officials have collected progressive information on these issues and are going to propose it in the meeting. They are confident that the Brussels meet could be fruitful for gaining back Nepal’s reputation on aviation.
The EC has been raising safety concerns over Nepal. Consequently, the Government of Nepal has begun work to establish an independent aircraft accident investigation body which is a key concern raised by the EC. This organization will work on improving aviation safety and prevent accidents in the future. International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) had also placed a red flag in Nepalese aviation industry during the ICAO Coordinate Validation Mission (ICVM) in July 2013 which now has been resolved. And now, CAAN and Aviation Industry of Nepal are even more committed to escape the EU blacklist.
Hence, Nepalese Tourism Industry is now growing even more with the help of a safe and secure Aviation Industry of Nepal. Now, you won’t have to think harder before choosing Nepal as your next destination. Now, you don’t need to be afraid of booking tickets for flights to Lukla or Everest Base Camp.
