Bahrain Air — the national carrier of Bahrain — is to fly twice weekly — on Fridays and Sundays — to Kathmandu from September 14.
"We have received several requests from customers from around our network regarding flights between Bahrain and Kathmandu," said chief executive officer of Bahrain Air Richard Nuttall, adding that the company is delighted to announce two weekly flights from Tribhuwan International Airport (TIA) to Bahrain International Airport. "Onwards, passengers can connect to their favourite destinations."
Kathmandu will remain an essential part of Bahrain Air’s network, being the fifth city the airline currently operates to in the Indian subcontinent with further expansion sought subject to receiving government’s approval.
"Maintaining our slogan 'Affordable Fare, Genuine Care’, customers will be offered the best value for money for travel to Bahrain from the region," he said.
