Flight Delay in Kathmandu and Lukla:

Tenzing Hillary Airport also known as Lukla Airport, is the small but busiest airport situated on a wonderful valley fenced by high mountains. This airport has been carved into a mountain ridge and sites by a perilous three-kilometers drop. Because of the high location, the weather around here erratic and is likely to be changed in every few hours resulting flight delays and cancelation.

Twin Otter and Dornier planes are the only the modes of transportation to and from Lukla Airstrip. However, because of the unpredictable weather of the high mountain reason, there is always the risk of flight cancellation or delays. In some cases, the flights are delayed or cancelled for 2 or more days. Due to the long delays in flight schedule it may hinder your trip. However, we Himalayan Scenery Treks and Expedition, help you to charter helicopter to or from the Lukla Airstrip, in case of flight cancelation or delays due to harsh and unpredictable mountain weather condition. We will provide you the best service to make sure that you are on schedule for your trip and international flight connection.

To charter a helicopter to or from the Lukla Airstrip, you will be charged approximately 2500 USD to 3,000 USD per Helicopter. The helicopter conveys 4 to 5 passengers at a time, so the aggregate chartered fee can be shared amongst the passengers (USD 500 to USD 3000 is applicable per person). The cost of this service is payable directly to our office, and later this can be submitted to the travel insurance company to reimbursement. Our company will provide you with all the required documentations for the claim.
