Upon the Ministry of Foreign Affairs' request, Himalaya Airlines operated a special diplomatic charter flight to Qingdao (Tsingtao), China, on August 09, 2022, for the official visit of Honorary Minister of Foreign Affairs Dr Narayan Khadka.

Himalaya’s Airbus 319, 9N AJK with flight number H9 7220, departed from Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) at 11:07 PM (local time) yesterday carrying an eleven-member delegation of MOFA officials, including Honorary Minister of Foreign Affairs Dr Narayan Khadka and landed at Qingdao Liuting International Airport at 7:55 AM (local time) today.

After the two-day official visit to Qingdao, the delegation will return on August 11, 2022, via flight H9 7221, departing at 3:00 PM (local time) and is expected to arrive in Kathmandu at 4:50 PM (local time) on August 11, 2022.

With the outbreak of COVID-19 in 2020, air travel between Nepal and China had come to a standstill with various travel restrictions imposed by both countries. However, with the pandemic under control and normalcy regained, Himalaya started its scheduled operation to Kunming, China, with a weekly flight from May 31, 2022. 

Since there are no direct scheduled flights to Qingdao from Kathmandu, the airlines operated this special charter flight obtaining all the necessary permissions.
