Kathmandu is its 16th international destination and the direct flights between Kathmandu and Muscat will basically cater to the needs of the Nepalese migrant workers who can travel to and from Muscat to other countries of the Middle East and Asia at an affordable price. Additionally, the tourists who are making Muscat as their transit, will also greatly benefit. As per CAAN’s approval, Salam Air will land in Kathmandu at 8:00 Hrs and take off at 8:40 Hrs.

Speaking at a press meet organized at Tribhuvan International Airport, Chandra Prasad Dhakal, vice president of FNCCI and IME Group’s chairman, stated that the flight will reduce the cost of foreign employment for each employee.
