Flights to Lhasa - Tibet Lhasa Flights Routes, Schedule, Airports and Tips 2020/2021

Presently, except for the availability of international flights between Kathmandu and Lhasa, there is no direct flight to Tibet from United States, Singapore, UK, Australia, Canada, India, Hong Kong or other international countries. The global tourists need to transfer in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Chongqing, Xian, Kunming, Shangri-La, Xining, Nanjing, or Xiamen, so as to arrive in Lhasa by flight.

The cost of flights to Tibet is considerably higher than the rest of China, hardly with discount or cheap flight tickets available even during the off season, which is largely due to the huge demand. So it's better to book Tibet air tickets in advance.

Why Taking a Flight to Tibet So Popular?

Taking a flight to Tibet has become the mostly chosen option for travelers because it is much faster, and save much time, compared with taking a train to Tibet, which usually costs more than 40 hours to reach Lhasa, the capital city of Tibet. At the same time, there are more than 18 cities in China you can choose as the gateway to take a flight to Tibet, including Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Xian, Kunming, Chongqing, etc. All these cities provide convenient direct flights.

You can also take a flight to Lhasa directly from Kathmandu which usually has 1 or 2 flights to Lhasa each day.

Current Tibet Flight Situation

In Tibet, there are five airports you can use as arrival hub – Lhasa Gonggar Airport, Nyingchi Mainling Airport, Shigatse Peace Airport, Qamdo Bangda Airport and Ngari Gunsa Airport. Among all these airports, Lhasa Gonggar Airport is the most popular and important one which connects many cities in China, such as Beijing, Xian, Chengdu, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Kunming, Shangri-La, etc. It also has flights to some prefectures in Tibet, such as Nyingchi, Ngari and Qamdo. While the rest 4 airports only operate flight from a few cities in China, such as Chongqing, Chengdu, Urumqi, etc.

Even though there are so many air routes, you’d better also book your flight to Tibet as early as possible because it is usually not easy to ensure a ticket for flight to Tibet as the demands are quite high especially during tourism peak months (from July to October).
