Domestic flights have been generally affected due to adverse weather. Flights to Pokhara, Bharatpur, Tumlingtar among the destinations were hampered due to poor visibility, the Tribhuvan International Airport Office said.

TIA Office spokesperson Teknath Sitaula said flights had been wholly affected in three domestic destinations including Pokhara. Flight to Simara opened some minutes back. The flight to Pokhara, Bharatpur, and Tumlingtar has not yet opened.

Although flights could not be conducted to three destinations until now, they were operated to some destinations with the clearing up of the weather. TIA Office said 115 flights had been scheduled for the domestic sector today.

The flights have been affected due to the increased air pollution at various places in the country including in Kathmandu for three days. Air flight to Pokhara was affected on Friday and Saturday as well.

Sitaula said although the flights towards the international sector were generally affected in the morning, they are taking place regularly now.

An aircraft from Qatar Airways had to hold for about two hours as it made my approach.
