Buddha Air, the country’s leading private airline, is planning to operate three flights to India from the Pokhara Regional International Airport (PRIA).
The flights to three Indian cities (Varanasi, New Delhi and Dehradun) will start from January 2023, according to the airlines. “The Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) has said the airport will come into operation from January 2023. The airlines will operate its first Pokhara-Benaras-Pokhara flight from the airport,” said an airlines staff.
Pokhara-Banaras-Pokhara flights will be available three days: Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday in a week, according to the Company. The government is making initiatives for an air traffic route from India, and there will be two regular flights along the Pokhara-Delhi-Pokhara route on a daily basis once the route and slot permissions will be obtained from the Indian Government. The Company has decided to operate three flights on the Pokhara-Deharadun-Pokhara route. At the moment, Buddha Air ensures the Kathmandu-Benaras flight via Tribhuvan International Airport.
