Oman Air launches Kathmandu service
Muscat, September 22, 2010
Oman Air flagged off its Kathmandu service recently, a day after the carrier officially announced operations to Dammam, Saudi Arabia.
Oman Air flies its new generation Boeing 737800- aircraft on these routes.
“We want to promote Kathmandu as a major tourism destination like Muscat. Undoubtedly, the new operation would give a whole new boost to the tourism industry, and the upcoming Nepal Tourism Year 2011 national campaign. The New Muscat-Kathmandu flight offers excellent connectivity, stated Philippe Georgiou, chief officer Corporate Affairs.
Oman Air has also appointed Amravati Travels as its GSA in Kathmandu.
Oman Air will operate four weekly frequencies on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Flights from Muscat will depart at 11:40 arriving to Kathmandu's Tribhuvan International Airport at 17:05 (local time). Return flights from Kathmandu depart at 18:05, arriving in Muscat at 20:45 (local time).-TradeArabia News Service
