Buddha Air is planning to operate Pokhara – Bharatpur flights and Pokhara – Bhairahawa flights. This will connect these two popular tourist destinations. Earlier, there were no direct flights from Pokhara to both of these sectors. This pioneering beginning will certainly save time of the travelers and is a plus point for the tourism industry. Flights to Lumbini from Pokhara is also supposed to boost the flow of Buddhist pilgrims visiting the birth place of Lord Buddha. The airline is all set to start its first Pokhara – Bharatpur flights from September 15th with an 18-seater Beech-craft. Timings are: Bharatpur Pokhara flights at 10:00 am and Pokhara Bharatpur flights at 10:30 am. Similarly, Pokhara Bhairawa flights at 11 pm and Bhairawa Pokhara flights at 11.40 pm.
