India and Nepal have agreed to an air bubble arrangement to resume flight operations between the two countries. The air connectivity had stopped owing to COVID-19.

The flight service will start with one daily flight between Delhi and Kathmandu from both the countries. The number will be increased gradually.

This decision has come after India’s Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla visited Nepal recently. The new medical safety protocols will be in place for the flights as per the guidelines. RT-PCR test report is mandatory.

Nepal banned entry of all foreign nationals in March this year because of the pandemic. Later on, it opened it’s boundaries to some countries that also included the country’s evacuation operations.

This new air bubble between India and Nepal will prove to be a good boost to the tourism industry especially for Nepal because the country’s major economy depends on tourism. Nepal has become a vacation destination for India as well as famous treks like Mount Everest and Everest Base Camp are an attraction for trekking enthusiasts.
