Nepal coronavirus lockdown and rescuing tourists 2

All scheduled flights were suspended until May 31 by the government of Nepal.


The government initiated the suspension one week ago to control the spread of coronavirus across the country. It was initially only announced until 14 May.

All flight operators were informed on Tuesday by the country’s aviation regulatory agency, the Civil Aviation Authority in Nepal, of the suspension extension. On the same day it was decided by the heads of the districts of the Kathmandu valley that the lockdown in the capital was extended until 27 May.

However, in the meantime, the Indian Government will be continuing to fly two flights each week between Kathmandu and New Delhi.

Passengers who come from India must quarantine for 10 days.
