KATHMANDU, Nepal-Tribhuwan International Airport (TIA), the sole international airport of Nepal is all set to manage 100 new pre-paid taxis replacing the existing 170 old taxis from the mid-July, TIA source informed.
Airport Air Passenger Transportation Service Management Company (AAPTSMC) would operate the service from the mid of July.
The new taxis would be of Euro 4 standard and all the taxis would have air-conditioning, fire extinguisher, fuel conserving technology and high mileage, among others.
Likewise, all the taxis would be of white color and they taxis would charge fares set the by the government, which would be on display board at TIA round the clock.
The TIA had given permission to the Tribhuwan Bimansthal Hawai Yatru Yatayat Baybastha Limited (TBHYYBL) one year ago to operate the taxis, but the process got delayed due to deep confrontation between the Ministry of Physical Infrastructure and Transport (MoPIT) and other stakeholders.
