Buddha Air to fly from Sita’s birthplace Janakpur to Ram’s birthplace Ayodhya

Kathmandu, March 3

Buddha Airlines, a leading domestic airline of Nepal, has started preparations for a flight from Janakpur to Ayodhya, India.

According to the Managing Director of Buddha Airlines, Birendra Bahadur Basnet, they have started preparations to fly from Sita’s birthplace Janakpur and Ram’s birthplace Ayodhya.

Currently, the Government of India has allocated Rs 101 crore for upgrading the airport and naming Adhyodhya Airport after Lord Ram.

According to Basnet, Buddha Air is preparing to fly after the airport is recognized as an international airport. ‘The flight to these two destinations will also be important from a religious point of view. Earlier, we flew two religious places from Pashupatinath to Benaras, but now we have connected Janakpur and Ayodhya by air.” He added, “Religiously, the flight between the two destinations is believed to be commercially successful. In addition, we have started preparations as there is no problem in operating ATAR aircraft at the airport.” He said, it will be a bonus flight for Budhya Air.

Buddha Air is currently flying to Banaras, India. But lately, the flight has been canceled due to Corona.

Passengers do not have to pay much for the one-hour flight.‘As the distance between Kathmandu and Nepalgunj is the same, the fare may be the same. But if the navigation and ground handling charges are higher, there could be a modest increase, ”he said.

Lately, Buddha Air has been focusing towards domestic flights. The company currently operates 100 flights daily. Buddha Air is currently serving an average of 5,500 passengers daily.
