Oman’s low cost carrier Salam Air on 11 September 2018, started direct flights on the Muscat-Kathmandu sector. The inaugural flight touched down at 08.00am local time and departure was set at 08.40am. The entry of another LCC to the country will boost air seat capacity in preparation for "Visit Nepal 2020" campaign.


The carrier operates five Airbus 320 with 174 seats and flies to 15 destinations including Muscat, Salalah, Suhar, Dubai, Doha, Jeddah, Karachi, Multan, Sialkot, Shiraz, Tbilisi, Baku, with new destinations: Dhaka, Khartoum and Najaf.


Kathmandu is its 16th international destination and the direct flights between Kathmandu and Muscat will mean airfares at the most affordable prices.


Salam will initially operate four weekly flights with plans for daily flights soon.  The LCC recently launched its frequent flyer programme ‘more on air’ which allows passengers who fly over 10 times a year to submit their boarding passes collected within one year of travel and receive a free Salam Air ticket to any of its destinations.  


On August 2, Thai Lion Air, a budget airline of Thailand started its flights to Nepal. The airline operates on Kathmandu-Bangkok sector with three scheduled flights a week.  At present, 32 airlines are operating flights to Kathmandu.
