Buddha Air suspended its flight operations since 24 of March 2020 after the Government of Nepal declared coronavirus pandemic in Nepal. Since then, all flight operations are at halt except for rescue and cargo flights. Amid this unprecedented period, we would like to share a message from Buddha Air's Managing Director Birendra B. Basnet, in regards to passenger safety during the pandemic and significant changes and updates that Buddha Air has undertaken to fight against the unresting disease.
In this long haul of lockdown, we patiently planned and implemented new ways to keep our fleet safe with a significant concern to provide passengers a sense of safety while flying. "Contemplating on the latest reports and trends regarding COVID-19 from the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN), Airline Operators Association of Nepal (AOAN), World Health Organization (WHO) and International Air Transport Association (IATA) and all the necessary changes were introduced in the form of drills for an effective response from our staff members while dealing with passengers, routine cleanliness of our aircraft and airport premises to defy any chances of infections, especial training to ground handlers with a new protocol of disinfecting baggage and exposed areas." Managing Director Birendra B. Basnet
Our overall effort has always been the utmost priority to make our customers safe when they choose to fly with us. Listed are the highlights of our preparations for better safety.
