Nepal suspends all flights except 2 to Delhi every week

Kathmandu, May 3

The government has decided to suspend all domestic and international flights in another bid to control the spread of the coronavirus in the country.

The suspension of domestic flights will come into effect at Monday midnight whereas international flights will be suspended after Thursday only.

In the meantime, two flights between Kathmandu and New Delhi of India, however, will continue every week as a part of the Indian government’s Air Bubble scheme.

Passengers coming in from India are required to quarantine themselves for 10 days.

Likewise, the government can allow chartered flights if necessary, informs the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal Spokesperson Raj Kumar Chhetri.

The suspension will be in effect until May 14 and can be extended after analysing the situation.

A cabinet meeting held on Sunday evening made the decision.

Last year also, the flights were suspended for around six months.
