Malaysia Airlines launches new route from Kuala Lumpur to Kathmandu in Nepal

Malaysia Airlines celebrated the launch of its new route to Nepal’s capital Kathmandu. The airport is now connected with the airline’s Kuala Lumpur hub three times weekly.

  • Malaysia Airlines commenced services on the 3,300-kilometre route from Kuala Lumpur (KUL) to the Nepalese capital of Kathmandu (KTM) on 1 September. The carrier now offers thrice-weekly flights on the route to the Nepalese capital, which is the subject of this week’s anna.aero airport analysis, all of which will be operated using 160-seat 737-800 equipment. Malaysia Airlines faces competition from both Nepal Airlines and Air Asia X, which provide four and two weekly flights respectively. Malaysia Airlines’ Commercial Director, Hugh Dunleavy, said: “We see great potential in Kathmandu. Kathmandu is a hub for independent travellers as well as a growing vacation spot catering to all budgets. Surrounded by serene mountains, it is a perfect place for those who yearn for a relaxing holiday or even a challenging mountain climbing adventure. We also foresee and welcome the labour market traffic from Nepal to Malaysia to use this direct connection.”
