Malaysia’s Malindo Air will fly to Nepal for the first time next year, as it continues its growth in South Asia.
Malindo will serve the Nepalese capital with a 180-seat Boeing 737-900 aircraft. Flights will depart Kuala Lumpur’s KLIA2 airport daily at 1905 and arrive at Kathmandu’s Tribhuvan International Airport at 2130.
Kathmandu will become Malindo Air’s 18th international destination and its eighth in South Asia, following the Bangladeshi hubs of Dhaka and Chittagong and the Indian cities of Delhi, Kochi, Mumbai, Tiruchirappalli and Thiruvananthapuram. Services to Visakhapatnam, in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, are also due to commence in February.
And the airline’s CEO, Chandran Rama Murthy, said he would continue seeking expansion opportunities in South Asia.
“We have ambitious plans for 2015 where we will look at aggressively expanding our brand presence in the region,” he said.
