Madhesh Province

Nepal needs another international airport. So why is Nijgadh being held up?

Local residents want the project to take off, hoping economic returns. But there are also nationwide protests against the plan, mainly over the number of trees that have to be felled to create space for the airport.
The Nijgadh international airport is planned to be the largest in South Asia in terms of area, covering 8,045.79 hectares when completed. Post File Photo
