Royal Nepal: Routes To Europe?

Fri Nov 21, 2003 8:03 pm

On what routes to Europe did Royal Nepal operate?

Which routes to Europe still exist?

What is the level of demand from Nepal to Europe? (I am a very keen backpacker and know a lot of people visit Nepal, the most convenient city of arrival in which being, of course, Kathmandu.)

Besides London and Frankfurt, are there any cities in Europe which have a sufficient large demand to warrant a connection to Kathmandu?

I don't think that there are any routes to Europe existing at the moment, they only fly within Asia.

Royal Nepal flew to FRA and not sure about LON.

The routing was KTM-DXB-FRA-LGW on a B752 if I remember correctly.

They also had a Paris service for a short time too, I think that was an extension of the FRA service.
I think all their European services ended sometime in 2001.

It appears the most popular way ex-London to Kathmandu is to take Qatar Airways. They have daily flights there and are increasing them next year as well.
