May 4: Domestic flights were obstructed for one hour this morning (May 4) at Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) following a hoax that a suspicious object was spotted in the domestic terminal building.
TIA office said that domestic flights have resumed as no such object was found at the building after a search operation carried out by a bomb disposal squad. The airport which was stalled following the bomb hoax has been opened a while ago, TIA General Manager Prem Nath Thakur said.
Passengers inside the domestic terminal building were evacuated after the hoax. --RSS
