Buddha Air, a leading private sector airline, is set to operate flights to three destinations in India – Benaras, Delhi and Dehradun - from the Regional International Airport in Pokhara.
"The Civil Aviation Authority has informed that Pokhara Regional International Airport will be operational from January 2023," the company said in a statement on Monday, "Buddha Air will fly Pokhara-Benaras-Pokhara as the first flight from there."
According to the company, the airline will run flights on the Pokhara-Benaras route on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
The government has initiated the process with the Indian government for the air traffic route, the company said.
"Once the Indian government grants the route and slots, two flights will be made daily on the Pokhara-Delhi route," the statement said, adding that it would operate three flights a week on the Pokhara-Dehradun route. Buddha Air currently runs two flights a week to Benaras from the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu.
