Himalaya Airlines, a joint venture between Nepal and China, is pleased to announce the inaugural flight of its highly anticipated Kathmandu-Shanghai-Kathmandu flight service, which is scheduled effective from December 02, 2023. This historic event will mark a significant milestone in Himalaya Airlines’ commitment to enhancing connectivity and promoting bilateral ties between Nepal and China.
In a symphony of lights, culture, and innovation, Shanghai emerges as a beacon of allure, captivating hearts and minds with its magnetic charm. This vibrant metropolis, nestled along the banks of the Huangpu River, invites the world to discover its rich tapestry of history, modernity, and limitless possibilities.
The new Kathmandu-Shanghai-Kathmandu route will offer passengers seamless travel options between the capital city of Nepal and the central coastal city of China, known for the country’s biggest city and a global financial hub.
Shanghai seamlessly marries its historic roots with a futuristic skyline, showcasing a city that is both timeless and cutting-edge. Stroll through the ancient Yu Garden, where traditional Chinese architecture intertwines with blooming flora, providing a serene escape from the bustling urban landscape. Marvel at the juxtaposition of the historic Old City and the futuristic skyscrapers of Pudong, each telling a tale of Shanghai’s evolution through time.
Renowned as the “Museum of Buildings,” The Bund stands as a testament to Shanghai’s international past. The waterfront promenade boasts a collection of colonial-era structures that once housed international banks and trading houses. Today, The Bund offers a dazzling view of Pudong’s iconic skyline, creating a visual spectacle that is nothing short of awe-inspiring.
This direct link between the cities reflects Himalaya Airlines’ dedication in providing convenient, safe, and efficient travel. Initially operating weekly, the service will increase to twice a week, on Saturdays and Wednesdays, starting from December 27, 2023. This signifies the third direct connection Himalaya Airlines establishes between China and Nepal, alongside regular flight operations to Beijing and Qingdao.
Himalaya Airlines is immensely proud to play an essential role in enhancing bilateral connectivity, cultural exchanges, tourism, and trade between the two countries. This launch will represent a new chapter in the bilateral relations, facilitating not only tourism and trade but also cultural exchanges and people-to-people connections.
This new route will definitely bring new momentum in the aviation industry of Nepal and contribute towards transforming the country from land-locked to land-linked.
This development not only enhances connectivity but also exemplifies the commitment to strengthening the bonds between Nepal and China. The tourism and trade potential between the two nations is immense, and this flight service will undoubtedly play a pivotal role in realizing that potential. With this new route Himalaya Airlines will bring in more and more Chinese tourists to Nepal.
