Himalaya Airlines, the new Nepalese airline, will launch its first flights to Southeast Asia next month.
Commencing on 10 February 2017, the Kathmandu-based carrier will operate five weekly flights to Kuala Lumpur. And then on 24 February it will start operating twice weekly flights to Yangon.
These new routes will be enabled by the delivery of Himalaya Airlines’ second aircraft, a 158-seat, two-class Airbus A320, which is due to arrive on 20 January. The airline currently operates flights from Kathmandu to Doha and Colombo.
Himalaya Airlines is a joint venture between Nepal’s Yeti Airlines Group and China’s Tibet Airlines, which is in turn part-owned by Air China.
