Kathmandu. The government instructs Air Arabia to refund the passenger's air fee.
Today, the meeting held at the Ministry of Culture, Tourism, and Civil Aviation regarding the complaints of high fares, black marketing in the ticket by travel agencies on charter flights and regular flights. At the meeting, Minister Yogesh Bhattarai has directed Air Arabia to refund 142 passengers fare who had arrived in Kathmandu from Sharjah, UAE on August 25.
Air Arabia had collected the fee for the hotel quarantine from 142 passengers but later passengers had to pay the hotel quarantine bills by themselves.
Minister Bhattarai directed the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal to allow foreign airlines to operate if they follow the flight rates prepared by CAAN.
Minister Bhattarai also urge Nepal's foreign diplomatic mission and NRNA to coordinate and facilitate with Nepalese abroad so the black marketing of the ticket can be crushed down. At the meeting he also asked the airlines not to charge high air fees and on regular flights, the budget flights have to charge less than the normal days.
