At Qatar Airways we fly direct from Kathmandu to our home city of Doha, and we would love to take you to this fascinating destination.
The capital of Nepal is currently undergoing massive restoration after the devastating earthquake of 2015, but is still very much open for business, welcoming travellers and visitors.
Served by Tribhuvan International Airport, this location is determined to recover from the natural disaster and welcomes visitors with a warmth and sincerity that is genuine and heartfelt.
Travellers flying from Kathmandu with Qatar Airways will find that the airport is fully operational and well run, and that the staff are eager to ensure that travellers have a memorable and hassle-free start to their journey.
Transportation and parking
While some transportation has been interrupted by the ongoing effects of the earthquake, regular transport from the capital to the airport has now been re-established. Buses run regularly from the centre of the city to the airport, and depending on the condition of the roads will take between 20-40 minutes.
Many larger hotels run shuttle services to and from the airport, while taxis are plentiful and probably represent the easiest and fastest way to arrive at the terminal. Long and short-term parking is available outside the main terminal, but spaces are limited and fill up very quickly.
Arriving in Kathmandu
Passengers flying from Kathmandu with Qatar Airways depart from the International Terminal. Radisson Hotel Kathmandu operates an executive lounge for first and business class passengers.
Note that security is very tight at the airport, so it is advisable to arrive in plenty of time before the due departure time for your flight to check in and clear security and customs checks. Because of the mountainous terrain, dense fog can sometimes cause delays in departures.
Facilities and amenities
The international terminal has a reasonable selection of facilities and amenities, and is comfortable, spacious and relaxed. A small selection of retail outlets sell souvenirs and accessories, and there is also a Duty Free shop selling luxury goods, perfumes and travel accessories.
Light snacks and drinks are available from vendors, and several banks offer Bureau de Change facilities for passengers.
The CIP lounge is available for business class passengers to access a limited number of business facilities, and there are two press rooms available for hire that act as small conference rooms for up to 40 people.
