5 reasons why Nepal is winning the war against wildlife crime

Government officials from more than ten Asian countries and international wildlife experts gathered in Nepal this week with one mission in mind: to tackle the poaching crisis across the Asian continent. The five-day anti-poaching symposium, said to be the first of its kind, played out in the country’s capital, Kathmandu. The location was fitting: with its enviable credentials when it comes to combating the poaching of threatened species like tigers and rhinos, Nepal is uniquely positioned to serve as an example to its neighbours.

Nepal, India to review airspace pact

KATHMANDU, AUG 02 – Nepal and India have agreed to review the airspace agreement to ensure more entry routes for airlines coming into Nepal.

The “singe-entry” Simara route, which is used by almost all airlines, has been facing air traffic congestions.

Although the details are not available, the move is “probably” aimed at opening additional bi-directional (entry and exit points) cross-border airspaces that are expected to benefit domestic and well as international airlines.

Particularly, Nepali airlines aspiring to serve Indian cities will be benefited once an agreement on the matter is signed as they will be able to enter from different routes to Nepal, government officials said. Currently, Nepal has three incoming air routes—Simara, Kakarbhitta from Paro in Bhutan and the Nonim air route from China. Kakarbhitta and Nomin are designated for aircraft coming from Bhutan and China, respectively, while all other airlines enter Nepal via Simara. Nepal has more than five exit points connecting India.

Nepal has been pushing the agenda of expanding new cross-border airspaces for the last five years. However, the plan has not been moving ahead due to poor aviation diplomacy.

Nepal, Bhutan revise air service agreement

Nepal and Bhutan on Saturday revised the bilateral air services agreement (ASA), increasing the flights between the two countries by three folds, with an immediate effect.

According to the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, the two countries agreed to increase the passenger flight frequency to 21 per week, with any type of aircraft whether owned or leased. The two countries had signed the ASA in February 2004, which had allowed seven weekly flights.

Nepal’s Tourism Ministry Secretary Sushil Ghimire and Bhutan’s Secretary of the Ministry of Information and Communications Kinley Dorji signed a memorandum of understanding on behalf of their respective governments in Thimphu, Bhutan.

The revised ASA has accepted the multiple designation system, under which there won’t be any restriction on any carrier of the two countries to fly to each other’s destinations.
