Qatar’s Emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, is slated for a two-day visit to Nepal, with his VVIP business jet scheduled to touch down at Tribhuvan International Airport before 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday.

The airport has issued a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) for a one-hour window from 4 to 5 p.m., during which two business jets associated with the Qatari Emir’s visit will arrive in Kathmandu via Dhaka.

Sources indicate that the Nepal Civil Aviation Authority granted permission for four planes to fly to Nepal on Sunday, with the Emir expected on one of the flights, while his aides and staff are on another. The latter plane has already landed in Kathmandu on Tuesday morning. Additionally, an Airbus business jet is on standby alongside the Emir’s flight. The Emir’s transport of choice is an Airbus A340, boasting a capacity of 450 passengers, although it is anticipated to carry around 40 individuals, including the Emir himself.

In the event of any technical issues with the Emir’s designated aircraft, the standby plane will be utilized. After the scheduled standby Airbus A-340-211 aircraft lands from Dhaka on Tuesday afternoon, the Emir’s plane will be the final arrival, identified as an Airbus A340-541.

Qatar Airways’ subsidiary, Qatar Executive, spearheaded these flights from Doha through the Qatari Embassy in Kathmandu.

Among the four planes designated for the state visit, the Gulfstream G 650 ER arrived in Kathmandu on Monday, ferrying essential instruments and equipment for the Emir’s business jet upon landing. Renowned globally for its long-distance capabilities, the Gulfstream G650ER is a preferred choice for VVIPs, wealthy individuals, entrepreneurs, and celebrities traveling between continents.

During this visit, all four planes are exempt from landing parking fees at Tribhuvan International Airport. However, an airport service charge of 3300 rupees per passenger will be levied on all VVIPs, including the Emir.
