Jazeera Airways is to launch flights to Kathmandu’s Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM), serving the Nepalese capital with four return flights weekly starting from November 17, 2019, and is scheduled to increase to daily flights in January 2020.

 

The launch marks the first direct commercial flights to be operated between Kuwait and Kathmandu, Nepal, with a duration of around 5 hours and 45 minutes. The direct flights offer connecting flights to cities in the Middle East and Europe.

Jazeera Airways CEO, Rohit Ramachandran, said: “We are glad to be serving the world’s 19th top destination for the year as per Trip Advisor and open a direct flight for travellers to enjoy the wonderful landscape and culture that Nepal has to offer. The new route also supports efforts to strengthen economic trade between both countries and opens a new low cost option from Nepal to the Middle East and Europe through Kuwait.”
