Apart from NTB’s above plans, the following plans are also included:

Better Air Connectivity:
To encourage more visitors to Nepal, the national flag carrier (Nepal Airlines) is going to extend it’s air-service from Riyadh, Lhasa, Gwanjhau, Frankfurt and London into Nepal by the end of 2010. From this March, flights to & from Mumbai, Shanghai and Tokyo are starting.

These include; Discounts granted for landing and parking except during the peak hours, construct a Ground Support Equipment Parking Area Extension, implementation of ‘Common Users Terminal (CUTE)’ etc.

Mountaineering: Since mid August’2008, Mountaineering expeditions had been receiving a discount on the mountaineering royalties, this policy will continue for another 5 years.  To develop tourism in Terai, a plan to promote Terai region is also underway.
