Himalaya Airlines starts Kathmandu-Dammam flight

Himalaya Airlines started its inaugural flight from Kathmandu to the city of Dammam in Saudi Arabia

Dammam is the third destination for Nepal's only operating private sector-led international airline, in the Middle East after Doha, Qatar and Dubai, UAE. The maiden flight H9 559, bound for Dammam, departed from Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu at 22:30 local time on Friday, according to the airline.

The company said in a press statement that it is the first and only Nepali airline to operate direct flights between both cities, meeting the strong demand from air travellers, especially Nepali migrant workers.

Presently, the airline will be operating a daily flight on this route.

 

Airline's Vice President (Administration) Vijay Shrestha said, "We are very happy to be the first and only airline to connect Dammam with Kathmandu directly. With this new route, Himalaya Airlines would be able to carter over 500,000 Nepalis staying in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, enabling many of them to rejoice with their families during this festival season."

Nepal is celebrating the two biggest festivals - Dashain and Tihar in September and October when millions of Nepalis travel to reach their home town for celebration.

The airline started its first scheduled flight operations from May 31, 2016, flying directly to Doha. Presently, the airline is also operating its direct flights to Kuala Lumpur and Dubai.

Himalaya Airlines has announces launch of its first direct flight from Kathmandu to the Saudi Arabia city of Dammam 

From 1st September 2017, Himalaya Airlines will launch of its first direct flight from Kathmandu to the Saudi Arabia city of Dammam.

The airline said that the flight would facilitate Nepali migrant workers to return home during the upcoming Dashain and Tihar festivals. Dammam is one of the most sought after destination of Nepalis for foreign employment. An estimated 500,000 Nepalis are working there. 

In 2015, the government had amended the air service agreement (ASA) with Saudi Arabia, boosting the frequency between the two countries to 28 weekly flights from two weekly flights. Nepal had signed the ASA with Saudi Arabia in October 1999 permitting flights to Riyadh only.

The revised ASA has accepted a multiple designation system and Saudi Arabia has adopted an open sky policy at its international airport in Dammam, which means there will be no restriction on the frequency.

The daily direct flight would ease the travel for thousands of Nepalis who have been paying hefty ticket airfares as well as spending more travel time while commuting between Saudi Arabia and Kathmandu, the airline said.

Himalaya will depart from Tribhuvan International Airport at 22:30 hours (local time) and will arrive in King Fadh International Airport, Dammam at 00:50 hours (local time) the next day.

The return flight will depart from Fadh International Airport, Dammam at 01:50 hours (local time) and will arrive in Kathmandu at 09:15 hours (local time).

Himalaya Airlines Vice President of Administration Vijay Shrestha said, “We are always looking forward to provide our passengers with the most convenient and time-efficient way of air travel. Considering the hours of hassle Nepalis have been facing while traveling to Saudi Arabia, we believe the launch of this direct flight will definitely achieve our objective.”

“The launch of daily direct flight to Dammam is Himalaya Airlines special Festival gift, to all our valuable passengers. As we move forward, our goal will always be to offer most direct routes to our countrymen at cost effective fares with warm Nepalis hospitality onboard.”

The free baggage allowance for both the routes is 40 kg for business class and 30 kg for economy class.

The airline has appointed Asfar Travel and Tourism as its general sales agents, who will represent the airline in Saudi Arabia and will be responsible for the airline’s sales and marketing, market development, reservations and ticketing services.

Established in August 2014, Himalaya Airlines, a Nepal China Joint Venture, is a private airline of Nepal providing international air service.
