Kathmandu, August 3
Buddha Air, a leading domestic flight operator in the country, says it will open direct flights on the Bharatpur-Bhairahawa route from August 15.
There were not any regular flights on the route as travelling between the cities on the land route takes just two to three hours. But, the route takes more time these days due to ongoing road expansion works there.
Hence, Buddha Air says it will operate three flights (on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays) every week between the two big cities of Bagmati and Lumbini provinces.
The flights are expected to give relief to the passengers who have a shorter time to move between the cities.
The company has begun Pokhara-Nepalgunj direct flights on August 1.
