BEIJING, March 8 (Xinhua) -- More than 1,000 Chinese tourists have returned home taking flights of China's three major airlines after a crash-landed Turkish plane caused four-day suspension of a Nepalese airport.

Nearly 650 Chinese have arrived in southwest China's Kunming city from Kathmandu via flights of China Eastern Airlines since the re-opening of the Tribhuwan International Airport, Nepal's only international airport, on Saturday evening, the airline said.
