KATHMANDU, May 19: Jazeera Airways announced the launch of a new service to Gautam Buddha International Airport (GBIA) in Nepal, connecting the large community of Nepali expatriates living in the Middle East and Europe to the south-west area of the country.
This is the second service operated by Jazeera Airways to Nepal. Flights to the GBIA commenced on May 15, 2022. The airline also said that it is expanding its services in the Middle East, Asia, and Europe
Announcing the new route, Vice President-Sales for Jazeera Airways, Ravindran Bharathan said: “Jazeera Airways continues to expand its network to offer destinations that also cater to large expatriate communities that are often not served by direct routes from Kuwait and the Middle East. It now really makes it a lot easier for Nepali and tourists to get into the Terai area of Nepal rather than going through an indirect route which could take up to more than a day of traveling. The new service to the GBIA is a direct service to the gateway of Lumbini.”
