Nepal has resumed all domestic and selected international flights
A cabinet meeting held on Monday (June 23, 2021) decided to resume domestic flights, but airlines are allowed to board only 50 per cent of their passenger capacity. The Ministry of Civil Aviation and the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal have been told to prepare a detailed schedule for the flights.
While the flights were in operation to India, China, Qatar and Turkey only since early June, some other destinations have been added by the cabinet. As per the Office of the Prime Minister, the following flights will be scheduled regularly:
Kathmandu-Doha: Four flights a week (Two by Nepal Airlines and two by Qatar Airways)
Kathmandu-Istanbul: Two flights a week (Turkish Airlines)
Kathmandu-Dubai: Four flights a week (Two by Nepal Airlines and two by Etihad Airways)
