The government had asked the Australian government to sign an air transport agreement because of Nepal`s intention to link Australia following the acquisition of two A330-200 long-haul Airbuses. Nepal Airlines officials said the A330-200 would not be able to travel to Australia non-stop. ”But Nepal Airlines can fly to Australia through a third-party codeshare agreement. Airlines operating international air services do so under the capacity requirements that are included in air transportation regimes. The available capacity registry indicates the capacity available to Australian air carriers. The capacity available to foreign airlines during the last planning season is shown in the ”Growth Potential for Foreign Airlines” table (PDF: 147 KB). Nepal will allow seven weekly flights of Australian airlines to Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu. Australian airlines will be allowed to operate another 28 weekly routes to upcoming airports in Bhairahawa and Pokhara, Nepal said. A horizontal agreement with Australia was signed and came into force on April 29, 2008. This agreement allows any EU airline to fly between Australia and any EU Member State in which it is established and in which there is a bilateral agreement and traffic rights with Australia. It does not replace bilateral agreements, but adapts them to bring them in line with EU law. This is an important step in relation to the traditional organisation of air transport based on nationality restrictions and complements the EU`s internal external aviation market.
