Change in flight to Lukla this season!

For anyone who is travelling to Everest region of Nepal this season, here is a slight change in your itinerary and flight schedule! Due to some construction work going on in the Tribhuwan International Airport, its operation will shut down from 10 p.m. to 8 a.m. for three months starting 1st April, 2019. Generally, the flight to Lukla takes off early in the morning. Flight to Lukla is one of the most occupied flights during the trekking season in Nepal as it is one and only mode to reach Everest region for trekking to Everest Base Camp Trek unless you chose a walking route to Everest through Jiri. Considering this fact, the authority of Tribhuwan International Airport has instructed the operators of domestic airlines to conduct morning flights to Lukla from Manthali airport in Ramechhap until the shutdown of airport continues starting 1st April, 2019.   

The chief of Tribhuwan International Airport, Raj Kumar Chhetri has informed that some airlines have already prepared for their morning flights to Lukla via Ramechhap while the others are preparing for shifting their flights starting 1st April, 2019. If you have already booked a trek to Everest region within the period above mentioned, make sure that you are prepared for a flight to Lukla via Ramechhap (Manthali airport) instead of Kathmandu.
