Road access is limited to the airport and nearest point of feeder road passing by is 6 kms away. This airport is not operational but can be reactivated upon authorization from the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN).

The terrain on which the airport is located is hilly and the flights to and from can be difficult due to high wind speeds and low visibility. When it was operational, during rainy season the airport remained closed.
