Nepal Alerte de sécurité

Kathmandu’s Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM) to partially close beginning April 2019 for runway repairs; daily flight disruptions expected

TIMEFRAME expected from 15/3/2019, 12h00 until 7/6/2019, 11h59 (Asia/Kathmandu). COUNTRY/REGION Nepal, Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu

Event

Kathmandu's Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM), Nepal's only international airport, will partially close beginning in April 2019 for repairs to its sole runway. The 3050 m (10,007 ft) runway will be repaved beginning the first week of April and construction is expected to be completed before June 2019. KTM will close daily from 22:00 (local time) to 08:00. Following the runway re-construction, work will begin on the taxiway. Flight disruptions are possible during the construction period.

Context

Nepal aviation authorities are concerned with the frequent development of cracks and potholes, prompting the government to forbid wide-body aircraft. KTM often has incidents involving aircraft taking off or landing, prompting the airport to close for several days.

Advice

Individuals traveling to or from Nepal during the anticipated construction time are advised to confirm the status of their flight and anticipate possible flight delays and disruptions.
