KATHMANDU, June 3: The Meteorological Forecasting Division (MFD) of the Department of Hydrology and Meteorology has said it would facilitate domestic aircrafts for the weather forecast of in-routes.  

The MFD said it would coordinate and facilitate in-route forecast for the domestic flights as per the decision of the aviation regulatory body, Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN).        

The CAAN had taken a decision not to allow the aircrafts to make domestic flights until favorable weather conditions in the airports for takeoff and landing. Based on this decision, the MFD was urged to facilitate the weather forecast. 

Information Officer at the MFD, Bibhuti Pokharel, said the Division is ready to facilitate the extent of availability of means and human resources.

“We will manage the weather forecast information based on our capacity and technology. We are also equally serious about aviation safety,” Pokharel said.
