Private carrier Jet Airways today said it will enhance air connectivity to Kathmandu from New Delhi by launching one more direct flight from May 23.
The airline presently operates two daily flights each out of Delhi and Mumbai and the addition of a third service from Delhi will boost connectivity and help tourists choose flights at their convenience, Jet Airways said in a release here.
With the introduction of this additional service from the national capital, the airline will operate five daily flights to Kathmandu from India, it said. The airline will operate Boeing 737-800/900 Next Generation aircraft on this additional route, offering premiere and economy class seats, Jet Airways said. "We are introducing a third service on the highly popular Delhi-Kathmandu route following an increased demand due to tourist traffic. With this additional morning service, we aim to popularise this among customers seeking a holiday break," Jet Airways senior vice president for commercial Gaurang Shetty said.
The new flight would also help connect passengers flying the Delhi-to-Kathmandu route and vice-versa to its domestic and international network, he said.
