Kathmandu, June 24
A new international airline is showing interest to fly to Bhairahawa’s Gautam Buddha International Airport.
Hungarian airline Wizz Air is planning to fly to Nepal’s second international airport which came into operation on May 16 from September.
Currently, only Jazeera Airways has been operating its flight at the airport, but there are talks about Fly Dubai and Air Arabia flying to the airport in the near future.
Wizz Air’s general sales agent in Nepal, Ravi Chandra Singh, says the airline is looking to fly its 190-seater aircraft to Nepal. The budget airlines will operate flights from Abu Dhabi, adds Singh.
“We hope religious tourism expands following the entry of another airline in the country’s new airport,” says Singh.
