Dear Travelers,
Kathmandu airport is going under maintenance from April 01 from 10 pm till 8 am so all the flights which are flying to Lukla are planned after 8 am which means very less possibility of flying due to weather. If you are planning your Everest Base Camp trek by this time then come with few more spare days just not to be in rush for your international flight. Some airlines are planning the flight from Ramechhap to Lukla and vice versa and for the it take about 5-6 hours of drive from Kathmandu.

Yes – What the above poster says is true, however the main airlines flying the route including Tara and Summit are rescheduling their flights from Ramechhap during the times of disruption and including road transportation by private bus in the cost of the flight ticket – This was mentioned on TA a few days ago at https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g293889-i9243-k12353585-No_Flights_to_Lukla_from_Kathmandu_in_April-Nepal.html
Kathmandu to Ramechhap is 145km and the journey will take around 4 ½ hours
So, although there will inevitably be some disruptions, hopefully these will be kept to a minimum.
There will be the usual helicopter charter available for those with less time and more money.
Good Luck
