Kathmandu, August 29
Sri Lankan national flag carrier, Sri Lankan Airlines, says it is all set to launch Kathmandu-Colombo direct flights from this Tuesday.
There will be two flights every week between the capital cities of Nepal and Sri Lanka, the company informs on its official Twitter page.
Currently, there are no direct flights between the two countries and passengers are forced to travel via different cities of India.
The announcement is expected to help Buddhist pilgrims coming to Nepal from Sri Lanka and Nepali tourists willing to visit the South Asian island country.
