MoCTCA Suggests to Open Regular Flights to India
Kathmandu – The Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation has suggested opening regular flights to India. The ministry has suggested CCMC to allow flights from Kathmandu to Indian cities by following the safety standards.
The ministry has said that the passengers with a negative PCR report can be allowed to visit Nepal. “Although the infection has increased in India, there is no risk of the infection by allowing passengers only with negative PCR reports,” said a source close to the ministry. The ministry has said that the flight should be opened so that only Nepalis and Indians can travel at the beginning without allowing transit passengers to travel.
India had sent a proposal to Nepal to open international flights as soon as possible. But the Nepali government has not yet given permission. The Indian Ambassador to Nepal has also met the Minister of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation to open the flight. After Nepal started flying to limited destinations, the Indian side had sent a proposal to fly to Kathmandu as well.
The Indian side had proposed to the Nepal Civil Aviation Authority to operate regular flights with certain criteria. India has proposed to allow only Indian and Nepali nationals to travel on the flight to Kathmandu.
