Though the statistics show some positive data I feel like we could do even more better. The only International carrier airlines owned by Nepal Government is troubled in itself. It owns two aeroplanes one damaged and the other also hardly makes an International flight. If we had enough aeroplanes the statitistics could even go better. But nobody is concerned about this making plans and policies is not a big thing what matters is the successful implementation of those policies.
