Singapore-based Silk Air has announced to operate regular flights from Kathmandu to Singapore.
The airlines will be conducting daily flights from tomorrow.
According to the company, the carrier will operate daily flights with its Boeing 737-800. The company is committed to provide good service so that passengers can enjoy with foods and entertainment in its business and economy class with its 150 seater aircraft.
The aircraft is scheduled to take off to Kathmandu from Singapore at 9:00 AM and will land at Tribhuvan International Airport around 12:05 PM from tomorrow. Similarly, the aircraft will fly back to Singapore at 1:05 PM.
Recently, Silk Air swapped the aircraft it operates in and out of Kathmandu following the country’s decision to temporarily suspend operations of all variants of the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft two days after the fatal crash of Ethiopian Airlines.
According to Everest Express Tours and Travels, Silk Air’s general sales agent in Kathmandu, the airline has changed the type of aircraft it used to operate flights from Singapore to Kathmandu following the company’s decision to ground all 737 MAX aircraft flying in and out of Singapore. By Tuesday night, 25 different airlines had grounded their Max 8 aircraft.
“Silk Air’s flight to Kathmandu was operated by Boeing 737 Next Generation on Tuesday,” said an official of Everest Express Tours and Travels. The tours and travel company also said that the suspension of Boeing 737 Max will not affect its scheduled flight in Nepal.
Although Nepali carriers do not operate any Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft, Buddha Air has been exploring 737 Max 8 aircraft model for its future international operations.
