Nepal Government planned on bringing Nepali citizens to Nepal from abroad in the period of COVID-19 via Chartered flights from the designated destinations.
In this situation, during the arrangements of the travellers in returning to Nepal, NATTA urged the Government to let all the NATTA IATA agents of Nepal to provide the ticketing facilities for them systematized through NATTA. The appeal to the concerned Committee was in requesting to not give the authorisation to only specific travel agencies to handle the ticketing purpose which would be highly supportive to travel agencies of Nepal in this pandemic situation.
In this regard, NATTA also had a Zoom Meeting with NATTA IATA Agents of Nepal on 4th June 2020 taking the consent of IATA agents where most of them expressed their support to carry on the responsibility of Chartered Flights in division of teams.
NATTA submitted a letter and requested for the less and acceptable fare to the stranded Nepalese people, prioritize in the national carrier flights, clearly publish the flights’ schedule and issue the tickets through IATA agents coordinated by NATTA.
