Bahrain Air will resume its flights to Kathmandu with daily operation from September 21.
Flights from Bahrain will leave after midnight and arrive in Katmandu in the early morning, said the airlines. “From Kathmandu, the departure time will also be in the morning.”
The departure times are designed to arrive in Katmandu early morning to facilitate same day onward travel into Nepal for residents and tourists alike, director Commercial Operations of Bahrain Air said, adding that Bahrain Air is delighted to be returning to Katmandu after a brief hiatus.
Katmandu is and will remain a core part of Bahrain Air’s network, and we look forward to boosting direct connections between Nepal and Bahrain, he added.
“It is the start of a new period of growth for Bahrain Air that will include resumption of old routes, some new destinations, and agreements with other carriers to boost our network still further,” according to him.
Bahrain Air is the Kingdom of Bahrain’s second national carrier which currently operates to more than 20 destinations from Bahrain using its brand new A320 and A319 aircraft, offering both Business Premium Class and Economy Class, free baggage allowances and complimentary meals.
It plays a major role in linking Bahrain — the financial centre of the Middle East — to major cities in the GCC, the Levant, Africa and the Indian Sub-Continent, with fast and economical point-to-point services, for both the business community and the travelling public.
Earlier, Bahrain Air had launched three flights weekly to Kathmandu, making Kathmandu the 17th destination on its network in 2009 March.
Kathmandu was also the third city Bahrain Air had been operating in the Asian region.
