June 18, Lukla: Passengers have been stranded for no flight operations at Tenzing Hilari Airport Lukla for the past four days.
According to Praveen Shrestha, acting chief of Lukla Airport no take-off and landing has been made at the airport for the past four days because of unfavorable weather. No aircraft has boarded passengers since last Friday as thick fog and brief shower occurring almost every day has worsened the weather condition.
There were seven scheduled flights on Monday but even a single flight was not made due to bad weather. With the disruption of flights, as many as 200 domestic and foreign passengers have been compelled to stay in Lukla. Passengers have faced trouble due to no alternative route to the airport in Khumbu region.
