Well, to answer the original question, service to KTM
started Sept. 24 1998. The service as initially operated by A310, then changed to A330/340, all with a stop in DEL on the way back. About two years ago the service was transferred to Lauda Air, partially even operated by Lauda Italy. Due to poor service and even very negative customer response (esp. due to Lauda Italy), the service was taken over by OS
again, still operating via DEL. As of winter 03/04, the return flight is operated nonstop. As usual during the northern summer, the service will be suspended and restarted in September 04. The peak season then will see a second weekly flight.
