AIRASIA X is planning to raise the flight frequency on its Kuala Lumpur-Kathmandu route from the current two flights per week to three times weekly, starting September 15.
Azran Osman-Rani, CEO of AirAsia X, said the additional flight frequency to the Nepalese capital was in response to encouraging customer demand.
“AirAsia X is responding to the strong and growing travel demand to and from Kathmandu. Since we launched sales, demand has been positive. The added frequency will provide our guests better travel and flight options,” he said.
Launched in July, the Kuala Lumpur-Kathmandu service was initially introduced for sale via selected travel consultants in Malaysia and Kathmandu. AirAsia X decided to open the route for online bookings on July 10 (TTG Asia e-Daily, July 11, 2012).
