Kathmandu, January 28. The Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) in Kathmandu experienced a network server failure on Saturday afternoon, which forced approaching flights to circle for roughly two hours.

Airport’s General Manager Premnath Thakur informed reporters that the passengers for incoming and outgoing flights were stranded at the airport. “Such problems have occurred in the past. We have ordered a manual service at the immigration,” he said.

The service outage began around 1:30 p.m. and lasted until 3:30 p.m. A large number of disappointed passengers protested at the airport’s lounge.

Meanwhile, similar outages have been reported at websites owned by government offices across the country. A major hacking activity has been suspected.
