Nepal contemplates resuming flights to India from October 17

Nepal is likely to resume flights to and from India starting October 17. A proposal in this regard has already been sent by the Civil Aviation Ministry, confirmed an official from Nepal`s COVID-19 Crisis Management Centre.

All flight operations between both the countries had stopped March onwards due to countrywide lockdown in Nepal, following COVID-19 pandemic. It is after seven months that Nepal`s Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation is contemplating starting flight operations with India.

Joint Secretary of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation Ministry Kamal Prasad Bhattarai told the media that resumption of flight operations will begin under strict adherence to health protocols.

"We have proposed resumption of flights from October 17, the proposal has been sent to the CCMC for consideration but we are yet to receive any response. Once they decide over the date we can further sort out the number of flights and permits to be issued," Bhattarai said.
