According to the officials at the China Eastern Airline, from the 8th, July, the airline will launch a new air route between Chengdu and Lhasa that so far only dominated by the Air China and the Sichuan Airline. According to the schedule, the new flight departs Chengdu at 9:25 AM and arrives in Lhasa at 11:15 AM. And, it will head back at 12:00 while arrive in Chengdu at 13:55 PM. It is said that the China Eastern Airline has been applying for operating this route for many years but always denied for one reason or another. It is until this month that the Chinese General Administration of Civil Aviation just approved the airline's application.
With the approaching of the peak season at Tibet tourism, the demand of air tickets now becomes very hot, not only happens to cities like Xi'an, Beijing or Chongqing that only got one or two direct flights to Lhasa per day, but also applies to Chengdu that enjoys more than 6 or 7 direct flights per day to Lhasa. Now, even with the participation of the China Eastern Airline, the price of air ticket from Chengdu to Lhasa seldom offers discount as the demand still remain very large. But we can speculate that maybe the competition now has started.

Dear Mr. To***,
Thanks very much for your inquiry. Travelling to Tibet from Nepal, you need to apply for Chinese Group Visa in Kathmandu. Firstly, we'll apply for visa invitation letter with copy of your passport. Next, we'll send visa invitation letter to you and our partner in Kathmandu. When you arrive in Kathmandu, you need to meet with our partner and give them your original passport, then they will go to Chinese embassy and apply for Chinese Group Visa for you. When you board plane from Kathmandu to Lhasa, they'll only check your passport and Chinese Group Visa. Apart from Chinese Group Visa, you also need Tibet Permit, we'lll apply for Tibet Permit for you in Lhasa, and our guide will pick you up at Lhasa airport with your permit. I will send detailed itinerary to your email, please check it. Thanks & Regards
