KATHMANDU, Aug 29: Manang Air's flight license is operational again after 11 days of suspension. The Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal had suspended the helicopter airline's flight license after a freak accident in Hilsa where an Indian tourist died after being struck by the rotors of a Manang Air helicopter.

Deputy Director of CAAN, Rajan Pokharel, informed about Manang Air being released from its suspension. The airline was suspended for the duration of the investigation over the incident, and was released for operation after the investigation was concluded. Manang Air has resumed regular flights from Tuesday. Corporate Chief of Manang Air, Raju Neupane, said that CAAN had allowed flight permissions after conducting a standards audit.
