Good news for fliers!
Turkish Airlines will be starting direct flights between Istanbul and Kathmandu from the 1st of September, 2013. The airline will be conducting four flights a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. The airline which has a fleet of over 200 aircrafts will be flying the Airbus A320 to Kathmandu. The entry of Turkish Airline into Nepalese skies marks the re-entry of a European airliner. Hopefully, Nepal will start seeing a growing number of tourists from Turkey! Or the link-up to Istanbul will prove to be a much better transit for fliers heading to the West. Now can we please have a London – Kathmandu route, like Please!
Malaysia Airlines is set to fly daily from June 1, 2013. The airline which has been connecting Kuala Lumpur to Kathmandu since September 2012 has experienced strong market growth. Kudos – hope TIA can handle all the additions.Read More: Yeti Airlines Plans 41,600 Tree Saplings Two Airbus A320 For Nepal Airlines Planespotting at Tribhuvan International Airport
