Lukla Airport (aka Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Airport), located on an enormous valley is bounded with high mountains. Due to this reason, the arrival and the taking off from Lukla are technical and difficult most of the time. The weather here is unpredictable and changes every next hour which causes flight delay or cancellation.
Twin Otter and Dornier planes are the only primary methods of transportation to Lukla from Kathmandu of the airway at Lukla. The service provided here is fairly dependable. However, if the flights get canceled or delayed due to mountain weather conditions, we will help you to charter a helicopter and make sure that you are on schedule for your trip and international flight connections. The additional charges roughly required are USD2,400 to USD2,800 per helicopter (USD 4,50 to USD 2,800 for each individual) would be pertinent to you for the helicopter charter. The helicopter will be taking 4 to 5 trekkers at a time and the expense can be shared among the riders. The cost must be paid by the rider, which can later be submitted for reimbursement through the travel insurance company. We can assist you with important documents for a claim. Payment for the helicopter must be done by the rider before or during the ride.
US dollars cash or Visas (Visa Cards, Master Cards, and American Express) are accepted for helicopter transport. Any card payment requires a 4 percent bank charge, which goes straightforwardly to the bank. The helicopter will be able to fly if the visibility is 1500 meters or greater, whereas the Twin Otter and Dornier planes can fly if the visibility is 5000 meters or greater, according to Nepalese Civil Aviation rules. If a situation, in which the weather is extreme and the visibility is lesser than 1,500 meters arises, then the helicopters will also not be able to fly either. In such cases, we will reschedule your trip for the following day depending on the availability and condition of the weather. If this situation continues for a long time, then you will be provided with alternative trek options.
