FAQs - Domestic flights & Transportation

During check in it is necessary to show the flight ticket, passport or passport copy and airport tax receipt. As the airport tax (in 2012: NPR 200 per person) is not included in the flight ticket price, it has to be paid at Nabil Bank counter or other Bank counter before check-in at the airport.

On domestic flights seat reservations are not possible.

Free Luggage allowance on domesitc flights (especially Kathmandu - Lukla - Kathmandu and Pokhara - Jomsom - Pokhara) with a Twinotter is 15 kg/per adult and 7 kg/child (included hand luggage)

There is virtually always a possibility of a flight delay or postponement owing to highly unpredictable weather conditions that may occur in Himalayan regions, in particular, in the Everest region (Lukla), Jomsom, Dolpo, Simikot and the Jumla region, etc..

When trekking in remote areas or those described above, and especially outside the trekking season, the clients are strongly advised to reserve extra days for making  allowance for possible delays, and thereby avoid any frustrating consequences. In the case of a delayed flight prior to commencing the tour, or at the end of the tour, the participants shall pay for their own accommodation, food costs, etc..

There are some different possibilities:
- wait till the weather conditions allow further flights and a seat is available (standby time can be quite long- sometimes several days)
- if available, take another means of transportation (e.g. jeep, local bus or private vehicle)
- return the flight ticket to the agency and get refund of the ticket price

The following transportation is available in Nepal: local busses, simple tourist busses, taxis, rickshaws, private cars/vehicle, and private jeeps.
