Cathay Pacific airlines will start operating direct flights to Hong Kong-Kathmandu from coming October 1, after a hiatus of three years.
The direct flight by the airline between the two destinations was postponed owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. The flag carrier of Hong Kong has sent a letter to the concerned authority to operate the direct flight from October 1, informed Prem Nath Thakur, General Manager of the Tribhuvan International Airport.
Presently, Nepal Airlines has been conducting regular flights between Kathmandu and Hong Kong and vice-versa. The Cathay Pacific has planned to conduct one flight a week (Saturday) to begin with, said GM Thakur.
