Himalaya Airlines, the private international air operator of Nepal has finally shifted its base for Dubai from 29 October. The airline now operates schedule flights to Dubai International Airport (DXB) instead of Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC).
Previously, Himalaya operated its scheduled flight to Al Maktoum International Airport from Kathmandu.
The airlines due to unavailability of parking and trafficking space at DXB were compelled to operate its flight in DWC but now the authorities from DXB airport approved Himalaya to connect Dubai through their airport after the availability of the parking slot.
As been reported the location of DXB international airport is quite close to the city of Dubai comparing it that with Al Maktoum International Airport. So the passengers too will be pleased to drive less from the airport to reach the city.
Dubai International Airport is among the busiest airport in the region is the leading transit base for various airlines connecting Asia and Australian continent with European, African and American continent. Passenger traffic at Dubai International (DXB), the worlds busiest by international passengers, rose 1.7 per cent to 7.2 million in September, according to a traffic report issued by Dubai Airports.
Previously Himalaya Airlines had halted their Dubai flight operation caused by technical glitches but had restarted their operation from 1st of September. At present Himalaya conducts their regular scheduled flight to Dammam, Kula Lumpur, Doha and Dubai.
