KATHMANDU, July 3: Private domestic airlines have decided to slash airfare with effect from Monday. The meeting of Airlines Operator Association of Nepal (AOAN) held on Sunday decided to reduce airfare by a minimum of Rs 115 and a maximum of Rs 385.

“We decided to reduce airfare after Nepal Oil Corporation (NOC) deducted the price of aviation turbine fuel (ATF),” AOAN Spokesperson Ghanshyam Acharya told Republica Online, “We hope the decision will provide a relief to air travelers.”
