Nepal has assigned Nepal Airlines Corporation as the national carrier for letters and parcels to any country except India. This move replaces Thai Airways as the air carrier for the communiqués.
Despite having a wider reach than NAC, the Department of Postal Services took this decision as Thai Airways no longer had a regular flight service to Kathmandu since 2020.
Due to the irregular flight service of Thai Airways, the department signed an agreement with NAC designating the carrier as the official transport for international communications.
The department’s Director-General Aabha Shreshta Karna and NAC General Manager Dim Paudel signed the agreement, which will take effect from July 1.
Both the officials concurred that the deal would save millions of rupees that the Department of Postal Services paid to the Thai airline.
While NAC has been assigned to transport messages and packages to the world, Air India will continue to be Nepal’s messenger to India alone.
