“Flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara”
Review of Buddha Air


Reviewed 3 weeks ago

I travelled from Kathmandu to Pokhara by Buddha Air last month. The flight was only for 25 minutes. Flight delays are normal in Nepal, it was 2 hours delay due to bad weather. Please make sure to come to airports well in advance, especially for international flights, because security checks take a lot of time.

The flight was very short of 20 minutes. Though high hill presence is there, the flight was smooth. Staff were cooperative. A little delay is always expected in Buddha air and it was a bit delay also in my flight.

I was a little intrepid when i saw the aircraft but the flight went on time arrived on time and was a massively better option than to travel by road - the only alternative -
Not a bad experience on Buddha

The flight is only for 25 minutes, but it is a flight nevertheless, and at first I was concerned about its safety. It was quite unusual to fly not in a jet airplane, but the experience turned out to be great. The local airport was another story. It was quite hectic with lots of people looking for information on their flights, many of which were delayed. But flight delays are normal in Nepal, just do not fret over it since you cannot change anything, anyway. Rather than waiting for my flight appear on the Departures screen, I showed my boarding pass to an employee and got all the info I needed. When travelling in Nepal, never panic. There is always someone around who speaks English. Make sure to come to airports well in advance, especially for international flights, because security checks take a lot of time. Keep your bagage sticker, you will need to present kt when getting your suitcase upon arrival.

If you want to travel between Kathmandu and Kolkata, Buddha Air is one of the best. The money charged is practically within your budget and you get a cordial and comfortable service. You also get food during your trip. The timings are perfect. Overall a good option.
