NAC to start Kathmandu-Seoul direct flights from October

Nepal Airlines Corporation (NAC) is planning to launch Kathmandu-Seoul flights soon.
The national flag carrier has recently received ‘take off and landing’ permission from a major South Korean airport, according to the airlines. "Incheon International Airport of South Korea has allowed NAC to take off and land on every Sunday and Wednesday," the corporation said, adding that Nepali airline has not yet been flying to South Korea till now.
According to corporate director and NAC spokesperson Ram Hari Sharma, NAC will start flying to and from South Korea sometime in October this year as per the slot provided by Incheon International Airport.
NAC will be flying its wide-body Airbus of the series of A330-200 with a capacity of 250 to 280 seats for its flight on Kathmandu-Seoul route.
"Our flight will take off every Sunday and Wednesday at 7:20 pm from Kathmandu," he said, adding that the aircraft will return at 7:15 am local time. "It takes 6 hours of direct flight from Kathmandu to Seoul."
NAC has also made business plans to fly from Kathmandu to Seoul and from Seoul to Tokyo, he added. "NAC will prove a good connecting flight for those traveling to the western parts of the US from Seoul and Tokyo."
Not only those returning to Nepal from those parts will also find it easy but lots of Nepalis working in Korea will also be able to fly own national flag carrier.
