Qatar Airlines is to begin twice-weekly flights from Kathmandu to Paris starting 1 November, the company announced last week. The route will be serviced by an Airbus A300-600R which has a capacity to carry 224 passengers.
Qatar already flies from Kathmandu to London via Doha. The Kathmandu-Doha-Paris is a new route from Nepal, says Joy Dewan, the airline's GSA in Kathmandu. The Kathmandu-Doha-Paris will be the 26th destination served by the airline, which also has plans to begin two flights out of Kathmandu every day.
