Oman Air, the national carrier of Oman, will launch flights between Muscat and Kathmandu from September 2.
Kathmandu is the 40th destination in the Oman Air network and will be operated with a B737-700 aircraft offering business and economy class cabins, a statement said.
“Oman Air is very happy to add the Nepalese capital of Kathmandu to its network,” said Peter Hill, CEO, Oman Air.
“Kathmandu is a much awaited destination and Oman Air would like to extend its customers in the region the opportunity to experience one of the most naturally beautiful landscapes in the world.”
“In addition to the strong demand for flights from Nepalese nationals who work in Oman and further afield, we expect to see a significant corporate and leisure traffic, which is important to the economic development of Nepal,” he added.
