china_southern_airlines_airbusChinese airlines, which had stopped their flights to Kathmandu due to earthquake and blockade, have resumed their services.
Some Chinese airlines have also started to increase flight frequency to Kathmandu.
China Southern Airlines, which had stopped its flights to Kathmandu a day after the blockade, resumed its service from August, operating three flights a week. It started flying to Kathmandu two times a day from October 30.
Dhir Chandra Shrestha, the deputy sales manager at the Kathmandu office of China Southern Airlines, said that the airline would add more flights if the demand increases.
According to Shrestha, flights coming to Nepal have 90 % occupancy. “Half of them are Chinese and the remaining from other countries,” added Shrestha. He also said that the tourism entrepreneurs should put more efforts to attract more Chinese.
Apart from China Southern, Air China and Sichuan Airlines are flying to Kathmandu from Chengdu, while China Eastern links Kunming with Kathmandu.
