KATHMANDU, Nov 13: The expectation and the hope of operating the Gautam Buddha Airport in stipulated and previously expected date is now fading out.

Seven Years before the Government of Nepal and the Asian Development Bank made an agreement of 8.55 billion rupees with the China’s North-West Civil Aviation Company to construct the airport.

At the time of contract the company has promised to hand over the airport to Nepal authority within the month of September, upon failing to do so the company has extended the contract till June of 2018.

The company has pointed out to the locals for the slowing pace of the work claiming they have been disrupting the expansion because of the hurdle in accusation of lands.

If completed the Gautam Buddha Airport will be the biggest international airport of Nepal.
