Tribhuvan is the sole international airport in Nepal. There are two terminals, one domestic and one international. Radisson Hotel Kathmandu operates an executive lounge for First and Business class passengers for different airlines and Thai Airways International operates a business lounge for its Business class passengers as well as Star Alliance Gold card holders.
