Ministry officials said work on revising the air transport agreement is in its final phase and the report will be sent to the Ministry of Finance and then to the Ministry of Justice.

Bilateral air traffic between Nepal and Vietnam is expected to be concluded after four years since the conclusion of the agreement between the countries on air transport.

The ministry said the flight service was being overhauled, with a focus on Gautam Buddha International Airport (GBIA). “Currently, 50,000 Nepalese visit Indonesia every year, while 15,000 Indonesian tourists visit Nepal.
