Nepal Airlines Flight cancelled without any notice

Posted by Dhruba Shrestha December 26, 2017 :
The European Commission (EC) has decided to continue its ban on Nepali airlines through an updated “EU air safety list”, the list of non-European airlines that do not meet the international safety standards and are therefore subject to an operating ban or operational restrictions within the European Union.

The EC updated its list on Thursday. In December 2013, the EC had imposed a blanket ban on all airlines from Nepal from flying into the 28-nation bloc.

The EU air safety list seeks to ensure the highest level of air safety for European citizens, which is a top priority of the Commission’s Aviation Strategy, it said in a press statement. Only one airline, Avior Airlines (Venezuela), is added to the list, while two others—Mustique Airways (St Vincent and the Grenadines) and Urga (Ukraine)—are removed following safety improvements.

“Our objective is to offer the highest level of safety in European skies. The EU’s Air Safety List remains one of our most effective tools to achieve this,” the statement quoted European Commissioner for Transport Violeta Bulc. “Today we are showing that with our help, airlines can be quickly removed from the list when they tackle their safety issues.”

On August 3, the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (Caan) had sent its report on the improvements carried out in the aviation sector to the EC to urge it to lift the ban on Nepali airlines.

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
