This is a list of airports in Nepal, sorted by location.

Nepal (Nepali: नेपाल), officially the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, is a landlocked country in South Asia. It is bordered to the north by the People's Republic of China, and to the south, east, and west by the Republic of India. Nepal is divided into 7 provinces, 77 districts (जिल्ला, "jilla"), and 753 local levels.

The country's only international airport and the hub of all air service in the country is Tribhuvan International Airport, which serves the nation's capital and the country's largest metropolitan city of Kathmandu. However, two domestic airports - Pokhara International Airport and Gautam Buddha International Airport - are being constructed and converted into the second and third international airport of Nepal. Both the constructions are scheduled to finish within upcoming five years.[citation needed]


Airport names shown in bold indicate the airport has scheduled service on commercial airlines.
