BEIJING, Sept. 21 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Air China has seen a huge increase in Chinese tourists visiting Nepal. There are now 70 times more Chinese tourists visiting the country than in 2002, the year that Nepal became a tourist destination for Chinese people.


Air China is the only airline that connects these two dream destinations, with flights between Lhasa, Tibet, and Kathmandu, Nepal -- a route that has been available since 1988. This is the only route that provides breathtaking views of the legendary Mount Everest to its passengers.


Aircraft on this route are flown by experienced pilots, and incorporate advanced technology, including Required Navigation Performance (RNP), ensuring optimal safety levels.


Passengers from all over China can visit Kathmandu with Chengdu acting as a hub for a number of cities in Tibet, and a number of cities in other parts of China.
