Nepal sign air service agreements with New Zealand and Vietnam

Staff writer |
Nepal has signed new air service agreements (ASA) with New Zealand and Vietnam, and amended and discussed the existing pacts with six other countries.

This brought the number of countries with which such deals have been signed to 38.

The aviation accords, which were concluded with eight countries at one go, allow flexibility on the routes, capacity, frequency and type of aircraft on any type of service, passenger or cargo.

The ASAs were signed and amended during the ICAO Air Services Negotiation Event held in Antalya, Turkey last week to boost trade, travel and the airline business.

The agreement signed with New Zealand provides for 14 weekly flights with any type of aircraft and third-party code share policy on a reciprocal basis.

Nepal and Vietnam signed an ASA at a separate event which permits 14 weekly flights between the two countries.
