Kathmandu: At least five passengers on board were injured after a domestic aircraft of a private air service provider skidded off the runway of Tribhuwan International Airport (TIA).

While speaking to ANI, General Manager Raj Kumar Chettri said “The Aircraft bearing the call sign 9NAHW was carrying 21 passengers from Nepalgunj to Kathmandu. It skidded off the runway at around 8:30 PM (Local Time) on Saturday.”
