Nepal Post has confirmed that the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) has partially lifted the suspension of international flights to and from China (People’s Rep.), Qatar and Turkey, with effect from 1 to 30 June 2021, with the airlines of these countries each permitted to operate one flight per week.
The operation of cargo, rescue 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 30 June, subject to certain conditions. The partial lockdown has already been extended until 3 June 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.
