Kathmandu Airport (KTM)
Kathmandu Airport (KTM), also called Tribhuvan International Airport, is Nepal's only international airport. It's located 6km from the centre of the capital, Kathmandu.
Around 38 airlines fly in and out of Kathmandu Airport, travelling to destinations in Asia, the Middle East and further afield with connecting flights. The airport is the hub of Nepal Airlines and a base for many regional airlines and sightseeing flights of Mount Everest.
There are plans for Nepal's second international airport to be built 175km south of Kathmandu in Bara, but this won't be open for a number of years.
Kathmandu Airport facilities
Kathmandu Airport has a single building that's divided into 2 terminals: domestic and international.
Airport facilities are fairly basic by international standards, but arriving passengers can get Nepalese rupees from ATMs and foreign exchange counters, get something to eat or drink at the cafe, buy travel essentials, book tours and log on to the free Wi-Fi.
There are several lounges that can be accessed by first class and business class travellers for extra comfort at the airport. Other travellers can pay to access the CIP (Commercially Important Person) lounge for Rs 450 per hour.
