According to the Vistara’s official website, the Delhi-Kathmandu flight will depart from Delhi at 2 PM and will reach Kathmandu at 4.15 PM daily. In return, the flight will depart Kathmandu at 5.15 PM and reach Delhi at 6.45 PM.
“We are happy to launch services to Kathmandu. The timing could not have been any better, as Nepal recently kick-started its global tourism campaign, ‘Visit Nepal Year 2020′ and prepares to welcome two million tourists this year.
“These factors make Kathmandu a promising addition to Vistara’s growing network,” Leslie Thng, Chief Executive Officer, Vistara, said.
With a vast domestic route network in India, Vistara, which recently celebrated its fifth year of domestic operations, customers can take one-stop connections to/from Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Pune among other cities, it added.
On Monday, Vistara said that it started phasing out nine Boeing 737 planes, which it had leased after the grounding of Jet Airways, from this month amid induction of the latest batch of A320 Neos in the fleet.
The airline is returning two of these nine leased B737 from January and the rest seven will be exited the fleet between 2022-23 as they are on long term lease.
A Vistara spokesperson said that by the time Vistara phases out all these leased Boeing planes, it would induct more than 50 narrow-body and wide-body aircraft in its fleet from Airbus and Boeing additionally.
