Kathmandu: The airfare to be paid by foreign nationals is going to be reduced in Nepal. Buddha Air has decided to reduce the dollar fare with effect from January 2022.
According to the company, the decision has been made to reduce the dollar fare by about 50 percent. The company also hopes that this will help in attracting tourists. Tourism entrepreneurs in Nepal were demanding the removal of the dollar airfare.
The decision is expected to be important in reviving the sluggish tourism business, said Rupesh Joshi, the company’s sales and marketing director.
The company said the busiest route for tourists from Kathmandu to Pokhara will now be reduced from 106 dollars to 65 dollars.
The newly modified airfare will be as follows:
Kathmandu-Pokhara: 65 dollar
Kathmandu-Biratnagar: 76 dollar
Kathmandu-Janakpur: 42 dollar
Kathmandu-Simra: 30 dollar
Kathmandu-Bhairahawa: 65 dollar
