To operate air services, the government of Nepal has prepared to enter into air service agreements with four countries. The government has prepared to sign bilateral air agreements with the USA, Switzerland, Rwanda, and Indonesia.
Buddhi Sagar Lamichhane, Joint Secretary of the Ministry, said that the Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation is preparing to agree within the current financial year. Lamichhane said that since Nepal and the USA do not have direct air service, the USA has shown interest in an air service agreement, and accordingly, the ministry has advanced the process.
After the air service agreement, direct air flights between the two countries will be opened. There is no direct air link between Nepal and the United States, so flights are being made through third countries. Lamichhane said, ‘Nepal has prepared to enter into air agreements with four countries to facilitate the air service for passengers and to increase air connectivity in the world.
Currently, the government has signed bilateral air agreements with the European Union and 40 other countries.
