Update : 29 Mar 2022, 16:13

Himalayan Airlines, one of the private carriers of Nepal, is going to start Kathmandu-Chattogram-Kathmandu direct flight from April 7.

Chattogram Shah Amanat International Airport Director Wing Commander Farhad Hossain Khan came up with the development.

Farhad Hossain Khan said, "Himalayan Airlines has received permission to operate direct passenger flights from Chattogram to Kathmandu. This is the first direct flight on the route."

The airline will operate two weekly flights on the route. At present, the Nepalese airline is operating seven weekly flights on Dhaka-Kathmandu route. 

Until now, a good number of passengers from Chattogram had to go to Nepal via Dhaka's Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport. Now there will be an opportunity for them to go to Nepal directly from Chattogram, he added.

It takes one hour and 25 minutes to travel from Dhaka to Kathmandu by air. The fare is 45,383 Nepali rupees, which is Tk 32,000. It is not yet known about the ticket price of the Chattogram-Kathmandu flight.

The airline has appointed SAir Air BD Ltd as its general sales agent.
