Lhasa -- Air China is expected to start daily international service between Lhasa in the Tibet autonomous region and Katmandu, Nepal on August 1, said an official with the company on Thursday.
Air China, the country's flagship carrier, adjusted its service plan by increasing from four flights per week to daily service based on the preferences of previous passengers surveyed and predictions in this year's tourism market, said Zhang Ping, director of the marketing department for the Air China Tibet Branch.
Air China initiated the Lhasa-Katmandu route in 1987. It currently provides services every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. The flight duration is one hour and ten minutes.
