With the merger of Singapore Air and Silk Air, Singapore Airlines is now expanding its services to Silk Air destinations including Nepal

In this connection, a Singapore Airlines flight landed in Nepal on Sunday after nearly 20 years. 

According to Raj Kumar Chhetri, spokesperson of the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal, Singapore Airlines, the national flag carrier of Singapore, has merged Silk Air with itself.

Along with this, Singapore Airlines has now started flying to Nepal. In the past, Singapore Airlines used to come to Kathmandu. 

Singapore later suspended flights after Silk was introduced as a budget airline.

According to the authority, Singapore has been allowed to operate one flight every Sunday. 

The ship carrying 109 passengers to Kathmandu was welcomed at Tribhuvan Airport on Sunday.

This ship has returned from Nepal with 4 passengers. 

At present, Singapore has banned Nepali and foreign passengers from entering the country from Nepal.

However, passengers can come to Nepal from Singapore. 

Even these four were only diplomats allowed from Singapore.
