Rak Airways launches Kathmandu route

Ras Al Khaimah, January 24, 2012

Rak Airways, a leading carrier of the UAE, will offer three flights a week to Kathmandu from February 15, marking the expansion of the airline’s network to 11 destinations.

Rak Airways re-launched operations in 2010 with two routes to Jeddah and Calicut, India. Since then, the airline has focused on extending its route network across the GCC, Indian sub-continent and North Africa, a statement said.

Rak Airways CEO Omar Jahameh said, “Kathmandu is a destination that appeals to both leisure and business travellers. The stunning natural scenery and opportunities for trekking and climbing have developed Nepal into a thriving tourism destination.”

“The tourism industry is a key area of focus for the Nepalese government; last year’s dedicated tourism campaign increased visitor numbers by approximately 20 per cent,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
