THE Nepal Association of Tour Operators (NATO) has released a statement on new tourism updates for Nepal, including reporting a jump in arrivals for the month of January from 2005.

The association reported a 14.6 per cent rise in tourist arrivals for January in 2006 from last year. Cheaper airfares on the Kathmandu-New Delhi sector was linked to a rise in 31.8 per cent in arrivals from India. To further tap the Indian market, the Nepal Tourism Board (NTB) will undergo a rebranding exercise by unveiling a new brand and logo in Delhi by end February, led by a Delhi-based agency with promotional campaigns in print, TV and radio for the launch.

Meanwhile, Nepal and Kuwait have reviewed their Air Service Agreement (ASA) to increase up to seven flights a week from each country from the previous agreement, allowing new private airlines to begin air services between the countries.

In addition, Fulbari Resort and Spa, a Pokhara-based resort, is now taken over by Blue Flag Nepal (BFN), a resort management company, with effect from February 1, 2006, for a period of five years.

Finally, Mr Prakash Shrestha has been appointed the president of Hotel Association Nepal (HAN) at the 37th AGM held on January 30, 2006. He is the current chairman of Lumbini Bank and former first vice-president of Hotel Association Nepal (HAN).
