Shree Airlines Diversion
After encountering low visibility in Kushma Bazaar, a Shree Airlines helicopter en route from Dolpa to Pokhara made an emergency landing at around 10:00 am when it diverted to the Chandika Armed Police Battalion in Kushma Bazaar.
Shree Airlines wants to emphasize that a diversion during rainy season is not an emergency.
General Manager of the Airlines Anil Manandha said that “…such landing during rainy season is normal. This is not an emergency landing.”
The chopper had intended to refuel in Pokhara.
The helicopter landed in Kathmandu at 1:00 p.m.
