International Flights

There are no direct flights between London and Kathmandu. We recommend the services of Qatar Airways from London Heathrow to Doha with a good onward connection to Kathmandu. Flights are daily throughout the year. Current timings (subject to possible change) are as follows:
Heathrow/Doha. Depart at 15.05; arrive Doha at 23.89
Doha/Kathmandu. Depart at 01.05 (next day); arrive Kathmandu at 08.30
Kathmandu/Doha. Depart at 09.30; arrive Doha at 11.45
Doha/Heathrow. Depart at 12.30; arrive Heathrow at 17.55

You can book the flights yourself on the easy-to-use Qatar Airways website.  There are many other connecting routes, some of which may offer lower fares.  We recommend the Skyscanner website for searching for the best options.  Alternatively World Discovery can book the flights for you (we levy a service charge of £25 per person for this service).
