Kathmandu: Buddha Air, the private sector-led flight service provider, is set to operate direct flights between Pokhara and Nepalgunj. The private sector company that has been expanding its flight services to the province level is operating a direct flight from Pokhara to Nepalgunj from August 1.

In the beginning, three fights will be operated on Sunday, Wednesday and Friday over a week. Buddha Air is planning to gradually increase the number of flights as per the demand of passengers.

The flight services from the touristic city, Pokhara, to Nepalgunj would benefit the people of both the cities and also contribute to the promotion of tourism opportunities, shared market director of Buddha Air, Rupesh Joshi.

He expressed his confidence that the flight service would also help increase tourism activities towards the Bardiya National Park and Karnali Chisapani- which are in the proximity of Nepalgunj.

Nepalgunj residents could also enjoy the scenic beauty of lakes and mountains located in the panoramic city, Pokhara with the operation of two-way flights.

The flight service would attract tourists from Indian cities, Lucknow and Kanpur – which are close to Nepalgunj, stated in the press release issued by Buddha Air.-
