The Delhi to Kathmandu route has surely become very popular! Indian private airline IndiGo Air has become the 8th airline to link the two cities after Air India, Jet Airways, Jet Lite, Kingfisher Airlines, Air Spicejet, Indian Airlines and Nepal Airlines. The low-cost carrier which started operations only in August of 2006 marked Kathmandu as its fifth international destination with it’s inaugural flight on 28th October 2011. Unlike the crazy price wars which had previously escalated during the entry of Cosmic Air on this route IndiGo Air won’t be causing a major shake-up on the route as their fare is priced at an affordable Nrs 8063 return (come to think of it, I think that’s pretty cheap right).
This is great news for
criminals Nepali businessmen/students/etc in India, and for all the Indian’s living in Nepal and also to Westerners who come in a package tour! I wonder when will we see such surge in other routes such as Kathmandu – Bangalore or Mumbai…Have you guys travelled via Delhi Airport or to Delhi? How was the experience?
