One can soon fly to Nepal from India and vice versa as two countries are all set to resume flight operations. Air travel bubble arrangement is in place between two countries and they have agreed to resume air connectivity after the flight services were closed due to covid-19.
Currently, the services will begin as one flight per day between both nations from Delhi to Katmandu and the number of flight services will be increased gradually.
The development has come after India’s Foreign Secretary Harsha Vardhan Shringla’s recent Nepal visit. And the usual medical and safety protocols will be in place for India-Nepal flights with RT-PCR Test being mandatory.
Nepal had barred entry of all foreign tourists due to the covid-19 pandemic from the month of March and later on, the flight services resumed for some countries which also included evacuation options.
This recent development is expected to boost tourism industries of both the nations and especially to the country of Nepal which is majorly dependent on tourism. Nepal receives lakh of tourists every year from all over the world including India.
The country is famous for the Mount Everest trek, Annapurna circuit, and many others.
As per the new air travel arrangement, both nations are expected to have tourism as well as the aviation industry.
