KATHMANDU, Nov 12: A modern helipad has been constructed on the premises of the Prime Minister’s Official Residence in Baluwatar.
The newly-built helipad officially came into operation after Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli flew to Sankhuwasabha on a Nepal Army helicopter using the same helipad on Wednesday, according to Prime Minister’s Press Advisor Surya Thapa.
The helipad meets the standards set by the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal, Thapa said. The PM’s press advisor said that the construction of the helipad will help reduce the time needed to reach the Tribhuvan International Airport from Baluwatar and vice-versa thereby ruling out the problem of traffic congestion for the general public.
