Kathmandu insider flight tips

  • The best cheap flights to Kathmandu from Sydney can usually be found with China Southern. They generally have the most attractive flight times and range of one-stop flights via Guangzhou, with stopovers varying from quick to lengthy. China Eastern fares are sometimes cheaper but tend to involve two or three layovers.
  • Travel time from Perth can be less than 15 hours when booking flights via Kuala Lumpur with Malindo Air (a Malaysian budget airline) and/or AirAsia. You can also fly with Thai Airways or Cathay Pacific although stopovers are generally long.
  • Kathmandu’s Tribhuvan International Airport is on the small side, with separate domestic and international terminals. It does have free baggage trolleys and Wi-Fi. Luggage collection is said to be notably disorganised with bags taking a while to come out – so allow time for this or travel only with hand luggage if you can!
  • Australian citizens require a Tourist Visa to enter Nepal. This can only be obtained on arrival at the airport and there may be a waiting time, so you should be prepared for this and for avoiding people offering to help for a fee.
