Kathmandu-Chengdu direct flights have reopened aftre a gap of over two years due to the Covid pandemic. 

The Chinese Embassy in Kathmandu announced the resumption of direct flights between Nepal’s capital and the capital of the Chinese province of Sichuan on Monfsy. 

Air China carries flights on this route. Nepal’s civil aviation regulator says the company will carry a flight every week (every Sunday). 

China apparently is one of the biggest tourism markets for Nepal. However, the arrival of Chinese tourists has been significantly limited following the pandemic.
