15 December, Kathmandu. A separate lounge inside the International Terminal Building has also become operational at Tribhuvan International Airport for workers going for overseas employment. Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation Minister Prem Ali on Wednesday inaugurated a rest room for workers to enter the labor permit check-in room of the airport.
The lounge has mobile charging point, WiFi, chair, hot/cold drinking water, TV, telephone and digital display board for flight information.
At first glance it looks like a VIP room. Raj Kumar Chhetri, Director General, Nepal Civil Aviation Authority, said, “We have also kept the phone numbers and phone numbers of the passengers so that they can call from there in case of any complaint.”
He said that at present there is a rest room for 30 people and there are plans to expand it later.
Minister Ale also inaugurated the free bus service on Wednesday morning.
Prince Chhetri told that three buses have been arranged to travel from Golden Gate to the inner terminal. ‘Passengers can travel in those buses for free. We are sure that this service will bring some relief to those people who have to spend a lot of money to get taxis,’ said Chhetri.
Airport spokesperson Prem Nath Thakur said that there are plans to operate free transport service from the domestic terminal building to the international terminal building in future.
