All domestic and international commercial passenger flights will remain suspended till July 5 in Nepal, said the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN).

“Special permission from CAAN is required for repatriation flights, rescue flights, freighter flights and flights related to the medical and other essential supplies,” said a statement on Sunday.

It may be mentioned here that all flights, except special charter flights, were suspended in Nepal since lockdown was called in the country due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The lockdown declared on March 24, however, has been relaxed to a certain extent and it plans to ease the lockdown in three phases.

The first phase will last for 21 days.

The second and third phases will last for 15 days each.

Nepal has so far reported 5,335 COVID-19 cases, with 18 deaths.
