Kathmandu Airport is 4 kilometres from the centre of Kathmandu. View on map.
Kathmandu is served by Kathmandu Tribhuvan Airport, also commonly referred to as Tribhuvan, or simply Kathmandu Airport. The airport code is KTM.
As one might expect there is a limited range of options in terms of shopping at Kathmandu Airport, so your best bet is to make most of your purchases while you’re in the city centre. However, there is a small duty-free area located in the Departures lounge for any last-minute gift items.
Since downtown Kathmandu is only about five kilometres away from Tribhuvan Airport, you can stay at one of the hotels in the city centre and have access to a complimentary shuttle service to and from the airport. Avataar Kathmandu Hotel, DOM Himalaya Hotel and Norbulinka Boutique Hotel are just three of the establishments that offer this service.
Sajha Yatayat buses from Kathmandu Airport to downtown are a reliable and cheap method of public transportation after your flight to Kathmandu, with a travel time of approximately 30 minutes. You can also visit the taxi counter outside the terminal and grab a taxi for about NPR700 (AUD8.35) to complete the journey in about 15-20 minutes. Car rental is of course always an option.
No, there no are dedicated meeting rooms or conference halls, but there are two press rooms, Press Room 1 (capacity 30) and Press Room 2 (capacity 40), which can be converted into meeting rooms should the need arise. If your party consists of just a few individuals, the CIP executive lounge is another option to consider.
KAYAK is a travel search engine. That means we look across the web to find the best prices we can find for our users. With over 2 billion flight queries processed yearly, we are able to display a variety of prices and options on flights to Kathmandu.
KAYAK’s flight Price Forecast tool uses historical data to determine whether the price for a flight to Kathmandu is likely to change within 7 days, so travellers know whether to wait or book now.
Hacker Fares allow you to combine one-way tickets in order to save you money over a traditional round-trip ticket. You could then fly to Kathmandu with an airline and back with another airline.
Sometimes travel dates aren't set in stone. If your preferred travel dates have some wiggle room, flexible dates will show you all the options when flying to Kathmandu up to 3 days before/after your preferred dates. You can then pick the flights that suit you best.

Pros: "The cabin crew was pretty good. This was the only saving grace in otherwise very poor experience"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours and they changed the gate from one end of the terminal (A15) to the other (C1). The waiting area was cramped. This being the home of Singapore Airlines, the way managed this entire thing was pathetic. Boarding announcements were also confusing."

At check in they couldn't even get my child seated beside me although a change was made last minute at the gate. Every other airline I've flown recently was better. Sri Lankan and Emirates FAR better service."
Pros: "Excellent crew, service and food"
Pros: "Good seats with great screens. Usb, headphone jack that works with regular headphones, and a regular power outlet! Tray tables upgraded overall and have a mirror behind a slide. Even the seatback pockets are better with multiple pockets including one that fits most mobile phones. The windows turn tinted blue instead of drawing shades down—what?!"

Pros: "Punctual flight with friendly crew."
Pros: "The crew and the little things like blanket, pillow, hot towels etc that is just standard. The food was great except the bread rolls Entertainment system was fantastic"

Pros: "Boarding was good and the flight time was shorter than expected."
Cons: "My son did not like any of the meal selections between beef and fish. We asked for a ramen noodle cup instead that the flight crew denied they had, only after seeing them offer it to another family just seconds before. I was very disappointed!! I believe the flight attendant knew of my concerns because she started asking me if the service was ok. If your doing a good job, then you won’t have to ask."
Pros: "Spacious and comfortable bed."
Cons: "The food wasn't that great. Average at best."
Pros: "Flight crew, food, boarding and entertainment great."

Cons: "Cabin temperature was really hot."

Cons: "Qatar’s food is great! Feels like five star dining. Attendants are helpful and friendly."
Cons: "I bought my seat assignment in advance, and they did not give me this seat on the plane. Before boarding, I asked at the gate if my new seat was a window--which is what I paid for--and they confirmed yes, my new seat was a window. Turns out, it was not, it was a middle seat. I asked a flight attendant to relocate me to a window seat, which she kindly did, however this seat was quite uncomfortable as I was seated next to a large gentleman who probably should have been required to purchase two seats. Overall, there were two issues with Qatar Airways during this trip: they did not give me the seat I had requested and paid for, and then lied when I asked if my new seat was a window."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and seat very comfortable."
Cons: "If I did not have to spent night in Doha waiting for connecting flight."
Pros: "Entertainment and food is always great with Qatar!"
Cons: "After I got in my seat an Islamic lady came and said that I was in her seat. I looked at her ticket and while it was the right seat number, she was on the wrong flight. I got a stewardess to help her. She had gone through 3 boarding pass checks and was still on the wrong flight. They let her fly!"
Cons: "As with all economy seating...it is cramped"
Pros: "The crew was super nice"
Cons: "Food. Usually I have had no complains with food in Qatar but the chicken dinner/lunch was really bad this time."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "The food didn’t necessarily agree with me but it tasted good and there was plenty of it."
Cons: "Headphones- only one channel."
Cons: "Entertainment on the Boeing 777 suffered from access problems"
Pros: "Nothing amazing. Everything was okay and average."
Cons: "They weighed carry on baggage and made me pay extra. No other airline does that. The check in crew at LAX were not friendly at all. No hot towel service after boarding. Food served was very small portion, not enough. Only 2 meal service during 16 hour flight. Not enough beverage service in between."
Pros: "Staff were fantastic."
Cons: "Better movies please."
Pros: "Great crew. Met every request and did a very professional, yet personal job."
Cons: "Overall meals were best I've had on flights. Did not care for last one but probably just a personal taste."

Pros: "Good service and a modern airplane"
Cons: "The check in at JFK, too chaotic"
Pros: "The entertainment was reasonable, I enjoyed the festive choices."

Pros: "The plane was Dreamliner. It was huge and nice. Great staff on board , very friendly ."
Cons: "Had an 11hr delay overall, 3.5hrs sitting on the tarmac only to be told to disembark for dinner at the airport. Then told that we won't be getting on until 7am the next day, but only really started boarding at 8:30am. By the time we were told about the reschedule to the next morning, it was too late to get a hotel room (too far away) and was told that I could use a 'Quiet Lounge' at the airport (which wasn't quiet). While waiting to board at 7am the next day, ground staff told us that they had to change the plane so there would be a further delay. On boarding, we discovered that it was the SAME PLANE."
Pros: "Ground crew was especially helpful to my mother who could not speak English or Arabic, and had never flown before. She also had difficulty walking, so everyone assisted her in the airport and during her long connection in Doha."
Pros: "On time Very convenient price compared to other airlines"
Pros: "At gate boarding was I inefficient and managed professionally. On board entertainment was glitchy as the movies paused and skipped the entire flight."
Cons: "The staff were not trained well and unaware of how to conduct proper flow of customer screening."
Pros: "Everything was good - food, entertainment, on time."
Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."
Pros: "Very impressed with the service. Very friendly staff"
Cons: "My entertainment unit on the Perth Doha leg never worked even after several resets"
Pros: "The food and the crew were excellent. Highly recommend the chicken massals"
Cons: "The seats in economy class were a little too close for comfort"
Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."
Pros: "All good thank you + food and crew and entertainment"
Cons: "All good thanks"
Pros: "comfortable seats good service"
Pros: "Very affordable flights, good value for money. Most of the journey from Sydney to Oslo (via Doha) went qiluite smoothly)."

Pros: "Love the service, love the crew!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and I liked that they didn’t make many announcements which can often keep passengers awake when they’re trying to sleep. Lights were kept off for the duration of the 14 hour flight which was good."
Cons: "I felt that the service was slow and the food was poor. Water was not offered during the flight as is the norm with other airlines. Toilets should be cleaned more regularly. Advertising at the beginning of the inflight entertainment became very repetitive when watching short tv shows."
Cons: "Everything, the food and movies are old, beside all that the flight late and my connection left and no one apologist for that!!!"
Pros: "Food was great. Attendants were courteous and nice. Airplane very confortable and clean."

Pros: "Crew were helpful & friendly."
Cons: "No vegetarian food."
Pros: "The entertainment options were very good"

Cons: "Boarding from connecting flight was manic, gate closing as we arrived only to then sit on the plane for about 40 mins before it moved. Extra leg room seats at extra cost are near toilets and watching the comings and goings from there is not pleasant. Staff ok but nothing special, left waiting with forms for lost luggage, little explanation. Plane decor looks tired, seats narrow. Luggage lost. Know why I like to fly Thai airways"

Pros: "Emirates is everything we can wish"
Pros: "ICE Rock solid, at least from SFO-DXB and vice version and its variation in different movies, songs"
Cons: "Food -- Really bad food for me from SFo-DXB. Extra salt and for a person who does not eat rice/desserts poor choice. Is there some other choice for me(vegetarian). Economy response -- Pressing the button takes a lot of time. Collection of shawls/earphones -- Please wait for the plane to finish its flight."
Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Nothing that i didn't like"
Pros: "The departure and return flight time, for the price I paid, I felt like I was in more than an economy flight. The meal, the baggage quota, the entertainment. The time flew because by the time the movie had finished, we were starting to descend. I will always look for this flight with Emirates. There is no other flight in comparison, in what you get for your Buck. I believe that other Airlines, ie., Qantas, Virgin Aust, both give you a flight and service, for nearly the same fare but you only get 7kg luggage, no meal just the basic entitlement, tea/coffe/water with a biscuit or something like that and NO ENTERTAINMENT, NO COMPARISON!!!!"
Pros: "Nothing comfort level very low. Very poor service. Looks like how to make more money by robbing customers"
Cons: "Bought the ticket from internet after paying found baggage allowance only 20kg tried to contact airline additional 10 kg luggage price was more than the price of ticket. Seating was awfully I am 6'3" did not fit in middle seat requested several times for isle seat my legs were sticking out each time I have to get up to let pass the passengers and staff safety hazard. Have to pay additional 70 pounds sterling for under 3kg."

Pros: "a vast improvement on the flydubai flight that took me there"
Cons: "Kayak booked the ticket through flight network and when we reached airport the airline staff was not able to find the ticket. The flight was missed in trying to find what went wrong and when called the flight network they told that due to insufficient time between booking and departure time they canceled the reservation. No message was sent for cancelation and it caused a lot of troubles and grief to all involved."

Cons: "Dubai to blre flight was better than IAD to Dubai as there was a chewing gum stuck over the window's edge next to my seat."
Pros: "We've flown asian airlines before, but Emirates is by far the best for international travel. Unfortunately we could not afford to upgrade to business, but because we let the Agent know it was our honeymoon he put my wife and I in a window and aisle seat so that we would have nobody between us. This gave us the extra room and comfort we needed. Also, they are a bit roomier than most planes with better leg room. They have a TON of free movies, tv shows, games, music and more on the plane. Food was decent for airplane food and they gave lots of snacks in between."
Pros: "Was upgraded to 1st class which was amazing - the only thing I didn't like was it was a night flight and not long enough to enjoy it for longer!"
Pros: "The snacks were nice and the crew was nice"
Cons: "Boarding was TERRIBLE!! Everyone was rushing the podium and overwhelming the employees!! Basically the employees could not control the crowd. Having lanes, or signs in multiple languages for boarding zones would be helpful"

Pros: "Crew was great"

Pros: "The crew were pleasant and the aircraft was clean"
Cons: "Seat pitch"
Pros: "My experience with the airlines was poor because I got downgraded without any explanation. Upon arriving at the airport, I kept hearing, 'just wait a second,' then, they would say, 'Im sorry.' In the end they issued a voucher to be used during a future flight, which will never be used."

The plane was extremely hot at the back of the plane, but not in other parts. The service was average and if you asked for something it was done begrudgingly."
Pros: "Good food. Thoughtful crew"
Cons: "Seat A beside emergency exit had partially blocked legroom. Don't sit here. Choose B or C"
Cons: "Ground staff at the airport, like wheel chair workers, others were rude. I thought that Thai people are humble, but my experience with them was horrible. I will advice not to travel thru Thailand."
Cons: "The TV on seat 55A was really hard to see and brightness would keep reverting back to low. Entertainment systems need to be freshened up."
Pros: "Everything are very much poor. Worth than Vietnam airline.(coffee cup’s rim was broken It was very dangerous) I will naver on board Thai alway."
Cons: "Nothing better~"
Pros: "Boarding process has improved (SYD), the crew were friendly and attentive, my special meal (Indian vegetarian for something different) was quite tasty and even the entertainment options were good."
Cons: "Business class seats on the B747 - unless you’re sitting upright, they are one of the most uncomfortable seats I’ve experienced. TG either need to upgrade the seats on the B747 (very unlikely) or put another aircraft type the BKK-SYD-BKK route."

Cons: "Attentive and helpful cabin crew."
Pros: "Huge plane that wasn’t full so it was very comfortable. Boarding was quick especially since I’m a Star Alliance Gold member so was one of the first on the plane.

Looking forward to flying Thai again several more times this month & wish I could experience their international service which I’m sure is stellar."

Pros: "Quick & efficient boarding but cost cutting has taken the shine off what used to be a quality airline experience."
Cons: "I’m not fussy about food, but the menu today was about as uninspiring as they come. Along with polite but perfunctory service and a seat that is nothing better than premium economy, I don’t know how they can get away with calling their business class product, Business Class!"
Pros: "It was fine"
Cons: "We arrived plenty early at terminal 2 like the confirmation said. Only to find that over night they changed departures to terminal 3. No signs. No one there to give instructions. Just a security guy saying “take sky train “. We had plenty of time so it was more annoying than anything. So we arrive at the gate and the are having a party to inaugurate the new gate and terminal. I’m glad they celebrated. Haha. Got to laugh. The big crowd at the celebration were passengers who were delayed bordering so they could have a celebration. Part of the adventure."

Pros: "The airline was fine, it’s Kayak who charged my card $170 more than the advertised price for the flight. I just want to be reimbursed for their mistake."
Cons: "That the flight was advertised for $252 and my card was charged $422. Hoping someone contacts me regarding this case via email as I can’t get in touch with anyone as I’m abroad. My info should come up and someone in the team can see that this gets remedied."

Would have been nice if water was offered when plane took off, rather than passengers having to ask for it"
