Kathmandu, September 11
A low-cost carrier from Oman, Salam Air, has started its flights to Nepal after the government gave it a permission to fly. The first Muscat-Kathmandu flight landed at the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu this morning.
The IME Group will be the company’s General Sales Agent in Kathmandu. Total four flights will be conducted every week.
Speaking at a press conference held at the airport on the occasion, Chairman of IME Group, Chandra Prasad Dhakal said that Salam Air would play an important role to make the government’s Visit Nepal 2020 programme a success.
Dhakal, who is the former Vice President of FNCCI, also highlighted that the airline would also help Nepalis travel to many Middle-East countries at a cheaper rate along with bringing tourists to Nepal.
