After the success of the airline’s flight operation from its TIA Kathmandu based main station, Buddha Air has now scheduled to start its flight operation from Pokhara. Airlines focusing on the current issue of road construction going on at Narayanghat- Mugling highway has planned to start direct flight operation from Pokhara to Bharatpur and Bhairahawa from 15 September.
