Manthali-Lukla Flights Resume

March 31: Flights along the Manthali-Lukla route have resumed after a week-long closure due to adverse weather.

Lukla Airport in neighboring Solukhumbu district remained shut for a week due to bad weather.

With the weather clearing up in Lukla from Sunday morning, flights between Manthali and Lukla have resumed. During the closure of Lukla airport, aircraft of Sita, Tara, and Summit airlines were grounded in Manthali.

To accommodate foreign tourists heading to Lukla, some opted for helicopter flights to Surke in Solu, while others chose to travel by road up to Phaplu. Pravin Subedi, Tara Air's in-charge for Ramechhap, confirmed that flights to Lukla resumed after receiving reports of improved weather conditions in the area.

With the weather improving, foreign tourists are now arriving in Manthali from Kathmandu via road to reach Lukla. Airline companies have agreed to operate Manthali-Lukla flights throughout the day on Sunday on a rotational basis, according to Prajwal Guragain, senior officer at the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) in Ramechhap. -- RSS
