Nepalese officials are in talks with top officials of Indian billionaire group Adani Enterprises for the management of its three international airports.

He said the meetings have been taking place since January when group chairman Gautam Adani expressed interest in investing in Nepal’s airport and energy sectors during a meeting with state finance minister Ram Sharan Mahat on the sidelines of the ‘Vibrant Gujarat Summit’. However, Adani officials are yet to take a final decision on the matter until the group assesses the feasibility of operating the airports. Nepal’s Civil Aviation Authority has decided to outsource the operations of at least three airports – Pokhara Regional International Airport (PRIA), Gautam Buddha International Airport (GBIA) and Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) – to a third company through a global tender.

Gautam Buddha International Airport in Bhairahawa, inaugurated in May 2022, was constructed by China’s Northwest Civil Aviation Airport Construction Group. It is funded by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the OPEC Fund for International Development. On the other hand, Pokhara International Airport, inaugurated last January, was constructed with the help of a $215 million loan from the Export-Import Bank of China. It is constructed by China CAMC Engineering Company Limited. Pokhara Airport is described as a flagship project built under China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) in Nepal.
