The Government of Nepal has decided to suspend all international flights except two flights per week from Delhi (one flight each by Nepal Airlines and Air India) as per the air bubble agreement, from May 6 midnight till May 14.
For everyone arriving in the country from these flights, Nepal has also made 10-day quarantine mandatory for the passengers at their own cost with other conditions for both passengers and the airlines.
The government had already decided to suspend all domestic flights from Monday midnight.
It had earlier allowed international flights from countries other than severely Covid-hit ones, while having directed various airway companies to cut down the number of flights by 50 per cent.
However, revising its earlier decision, the government has now decided to ban all international flights from Thursday midnight sans two air bubble flights from the Indian capital, according to Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) Director General Rajan Pokhrel.
