The easiest way to book flight to Tibet is to entrust your local travel agent to book flight to Tibet for you. Travel agent like Great Tibet Tour, not only no extra service fee over flight booking, but no problem of being required by flight booking platforms to present Tibet Travel Permit copy.
Sometimes when you book flight to Tibet by yourself, the flight booking platforms will required you to present a copy of your Tibet Permit, but Tibet Permit is usually issued only about a week or so prior your tour starts. Flight booking platform will then suggest you to book flight after you have Tibet Permit copy, or to hold on to your booking only to be confirmed after you provide Tibet Permit copy, which means there's great variability if your flight booking is successful until a week or so prior your tour starts.
Won't it be rather scary of not knowing for sure?
