Nepal – Extension of suspension of international flights to Nepal

14 May, 2021


Nepal Post, asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) has extended the suspension of international flights until midnight 31 May 2021. CAAN has also announced that all domestic flights are suspended until midnight 31 May. The operation of cargo flights, rescue flights and evacuation flights will be carried out subject to special permission. Two flights per week will be permitted between Nepal and India under the air travel bubble arrangement effective until 31 May, subject to certain conditions. The partial lockdown has already been extended until 27 May 2021. These measures may result in delays in the collection, transportation and delivery of mails. Nepal Post will continue to be unable to accept outbound mails to countries other than India, until such time as the passenger flights normally used to transport mail are resumed. Nepal Post thanks other Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding.
