The national carrier of Nepal stated that it would resume its services to and from Mumbai with three weekly flights on Sunday, Wednesday, and Friday, a news report by Zee News added. To make the deal more attractive, the airline is launching a buy-two-get-one-free campaign for the month of April, under which every third passenger in a group of three will receive a waiver in the base fare.
This announcement comes after pandemic-related restrictions disrupted international travel and halted flights between the two countries over two years ago. Prior to this, the airline was flying at full capacity and expects to do the same in the near future, Economic Times reports.
India recently lifted its ban on scheduled international flights, announcing that routes would recommence by March 27. The latest guidelines for international passengers, issued by the health ministry, state that passengers need to upload proof of two doses of vaccination on the online Air Suvidha portal of the airport or a negative RT-PCR test report, taken 72 hours prior to departure.
