Himalayan Airlines is directly flying from Kathmandu to Beijing from next Sunday (October 27). This is the first time a Nepali aircraft is flying directly to Beijing.
Earlier, Nepal Airlines Corporation used to stay for a transit at Shanghai and fly to Japan. After that no any Nepali company was able to fly directly to Chinese cities. Himalayan Airlines calls this flight a historic start.
The flight time to Kathmandu-Beijing will take about approximately 5 hours. The Himalaya Airlines has not made a detailed announcement on how many flights from Nepal to Beijing will take place. Himalaya Airlines, plans to fly Airbus 320 on this route.
Hope this move from Himalaya Airlines Corporation aids in Visit Nepal 2020 campaign.
