Repatriation of Nepalese continues


KATHMANDU: Regular chartered flights are taking place from the Tribhuvan International Airport to rescue and repatriate Nepalis stranded due to Corona Virus in different countries.

The evacuation started a week ago, with the government’s decision to bring back those in real problems as a result of the pandemic and subsequent lockdown. The chartered flights are being made through the state-owned Nepal Airlines Corporation and the private Himalaya Airlines. Furthermore, international airlines including Qatar Airway, Jazeera Airways, Turkish Air, Korea Air are also making chartered flights to and from Kathmandu. Today, Nepal Airlines, Himalaya Airlines, and Jazeera airways are bringing Nepalis from Abu Dhabi, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia, according to the TIA office. Nepal Airlines is also bringing Nepalis from Melbourne, Australia today.

On average, 10 to 16 chartered flights are taking from the TIA since last Saturday. Some of them include cargo flights as well, bringing in essential medical supplies and other goods. In the first phase, the government has decided to repatriate some 30,000 Nepalis stranded in different countries.
