Kathmandu, July 23
Buddha Air, a leading domestic flight operator in the country, says it will open direct flights on the Pokhara-Nepalgunj route from August 1.
There were not any regular flights on the route until now although a few chartered flights would take place.
But, Buddha Air says it will operate three flights (on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays) every week between the two big cities of Gandaki and Lumbini provinces.
The company hopes the new route will help Indian travellers visit Pokhara, Nepal’s tourism capital, as Nepalgunj is very close to the border.
