KATHMANDU, May 28: The government has decided to allow one regular flight each week to China, Qatar and Turkey starting from June 1.
A cabinet meeting held at the Official Residence of Prime Minister K P Oli in Baluwatar on Thursday evening made a decision to this effect. Only charter flights have been allowed to these destinations now after the government earlier decided to suspend all flights to and from Nepal on May 6 to contain further spread of COVID-19.
According a cabinet source, a regular flight a week to Doha, Istanbul and any city of China will be allowed from June 1 with the cabinet decision. This comes amid reports that airlines companies and airlines agents were charging exorbitant fares to those wanting to fly to and from Kathmandu.
