Maintenance engineers from Shree Airlines’ 9N-ANE aircraft have been removed from the roster: CAAN

KATHMANDU: The Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) has temporarily halted the flight of the Shree Airlines plane 9N-ANE.

The operation of Shree Airlines’ aircraft 9N-ANE has been suspended, and the concerned maintenance engineers have been removed from the roster, CAAN said on Twitter in response to the “Nose landing gear door open during taxi” incident at Dhangadhi Airport on May 6 and the ongoing problem at Bhairahawa Airport on May 8.

The 80-seat S8 aircraft carrying the flight number SHA 822 earlier today traveled 20 miles from the Bhairahawa, India-based Gautam Buddha International Airport (GBIA) before making a second emergency landing there.

Similar to the Bhairahawa airport, the Shree Airlines plane’s runway obstruction lasted for about 50 minutes. After the airport’s runway was not cleared, Yeti’s flight from Kathmandu made a U-turn and headed back to the capital.

Around 9:40 in the morning, the Shree Airlines plane took off from Bhairahawa for Kathmandu. The pilot quickly returned the aircraft to Bhairahawa after noticing a technical issue shortly after takeoff. On board were 75 passengers.
