The Non-Residential Nepali Association (NRNA) together with the Nepal Tourism Board and other authorities launched a cleaning campaign “Atithi Devo Bhawa” at the Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA). It is a month-long campaign aimed at transforming the TIA as clean and well-managed as other international airports and make the experience of tourists pleasant.
Khem’s Cleaning Services, a cleaning company based in Australia, is training the workers.
Along with the training and cleaning campaign, technologies will be updated to ensure that facilities at the TIA meet the international standards, according to an in-charge of the airport’s cleaning division.
The TIA, Nepal’s only international airport, has been facing criticism for poor sanitation and maintenance.
Sanjiv Gautam, director general of the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal, promised to keep the TIA neat and tidy.
The organizers said that the campaign’s duration could be extended if the expected results are not achieved.
