Gurung informed Prime Minister Sunak that the long-haul carrier has planned to operate regular commercial flights to Monte Carlo, Macau and Las Vegas from 2025. Meanwhile, flights will be operated to 33 main cities of the world along with direct charter flights to Nepal within this year, he informed.

While Gurung urged the British Prime Minister Sunak to arrange a suitable time to visit Pashupatinath and the Himalayas for a holiday, the latter informed that he was scheduled to visit India in September.
