The most reasonable connections to Kathmandu are via Bangkok, Hong Kong, Delhi,Abudhabi, Doha, Hongkong, Shanghai, Oshaka, Kualalumour, Kolkata, Varanashi, Banglore, Mumbai, Paro, Dhaka, Veinna,

Amsterdam, Dubai, Lhasa, and Singapore. There are IT (inclusive tour) fares on all these sectors. Check the flights of Royal Nepal Airlines, Thai International, Qatar airways, Gulf airlines and Singapore Airlines. Bangkok flights are heavily booked in the high season, but it’s sometimes worth hanging around the airport looking for a stand-by seat to Kathmandu. From India flights are fully booked – usually by Indian tourists .

The only concesional fares are for students and for youth who are under 30 at the time of departure . There are flights to Kathmandu from Delhi, Bombay, Calcutta, Banglore and Varanasi. The one and half -hour Delhi to Kathmandu flight on either Indian Airlines, Jet Airways or Royal Nepal Airlines costs around US$ 153. Kathmandu has some other interesting airline connections; Air China from Lhasa, part of the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) group, operates a flight from Lhasa to Kathmandu on Tuesdays and Saturdays( Thursday is seasonal).

Transavia & Austrian airlines also operates direct flight from Amsterdam & Vienna respectively. Bangladesh Biman brings passenger to Kathmandu via Dhaka 4 times in a week. Aeroflot have best fare to Nepal from all cities of Europe and operates flight via Delhi. From Germany, look at charter flights; LTU operates a weekly flight from Germany to Kathmandu during winter.

From North America :
North America is halfway around the world from Nepal, so you have a choice of crossing either the Atlantic or Pacific oceans. If you are flying via the Atlantic, you will probably be happier connecting with a direct flight to Kathmandu from London or Frankfurt. Avoid flights via India as the Delhi to Kathmandu fare is high and transit facilities at Delhi airport are tedious. Pacific routes usually require an overnight stay in Bangkok or Hong Kong, but there are frequent flights and most airlines have APEX fares one way from the west coast to Kathmandu. Northwest, United, Korean and Thai International all offer excursion fares from the west coast to Kathmandu via Bangkok

Look for routes via Singapore, Hong Kong or Bangkok. Check with Cathay pacific, Qantas for best fare to Nepal via Bangkok & Hongkong
