Jet Airways, an India-based private airline company, will start operating five daily flights to Nepal beginning October 30.
As per the schedule, the airline will fly thrice a day on the Kathmandu-Delhi route and twice a day on the Kathmandu-Mumbai route. The carrier had reduced its flight frequency to Nepal to three per day, including two on the Kathmandu-Delhi in August last year.
“Jet Airways is pleased to introduce additional services to Kathmandu to meet the perennially high tourist demand,” Jet Airways Chief Commercial Officer Jayaraj Shanmugam said in a statement on Wednesday.
Introduction of a second daily service between Kathmandu and Mumbai, will double the company’s current capacity between the two cities. Similarly, the capacity between Kathmandu and New Delhi will also be augmented with the addition of a third flight, reads the statement.
The Mumbai-Kathmandu flight will depart Mumbai at 8:15am and arrive in Kathmandu at 11:10am. The flight will depart Kathmandu at 12:10pm and arrive in Mumbai at 2:50pm.
The new flight to Kathmandu from New Delhi, on the other hand, will depart at 10:40am from the Indian capital and arrive in Kathmandu at 12:30pm. The flight will depart Kathmandu at 1:30pm and arrive in New Delhi at 3:05pm, Jet Airways adds. A Boeing 737-800 Next Generation aircraft will be operated on the routes.
