On Tuesday, Nepalese civil aviation officials questioned if a flydubai plane had been damaged by a bird strike in Nepali airspace, calling the UAE airline’s account “misleading.”

The airline said late Monday that a bird struck a flight from Kathmandu, Nepal’s capital, to Dubai during takeoff.

According to a flydubai official, the plane continued its flight once crew members assessed that the engine was running properly, and it landed in Dubai without incident just after midnight.

However, the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) said on Tuesday that the airline’s national manager and airport manager had been barred from using Kathmandu airport due to “misleading” accusations of a bird attack.

When questioned about what occurred, the firm blamed it on a bird strike. The pilot made no such report, and no such evidence was discovered. “There is no evidence or basis for this,” asserted CAAN spokesperson Jagannath Niroula.

According to Niroula, one of the plane’s engines caught fire shortly after departing Kathmandu, forcing the CAAN to organize a technical committee to investigate the event.

In Nepal’s hilly terrain, there has been a history of tragic aviation mishaps, and in January of this year, an ATR 72 operated by Yeti Airlines crashed, killing all 72 people on board.
