Nepal Airport Guide

There are some 35 airports in Nepal. Only 10 have paved runways and even fewer are able to receive large aircraft. Still, the country is well-covered by quite an extensive network of smaller airports which can be easily chartered. Nepal airport officials are usually friendly and helpful but may not be able to speak English so if you are planning to pilot yourself to the country, make sure authorities know about it way ahead of your arrival date when you fly into Nepal.

The only airport with a customs procedure is Tribhuyan International in Kathmandu. There are officially published approach procedures for Bhairahawa airport, Biratnagar airport, Nepalguni airport and, of course, Tribhuyan International. We have listed all 35 airports below to help you with your travel arrangements. Keep in mind that there may be a few more Nepal airports that are not listed here.
