Kathmandu becomes Air Sahara's 24th destination. The airline operates a fleet of 19 aircraft including 12 Boeing 737s and 7 Canadair Regional Jets.

gr8 news! I think they should consider linking VNS and PAT with KTM as well.

VNS and PAT to KTM works out much cheaper and many tourists choose that option rather than take the land route.

One of S2's DEL-VNS and DEL-PAT flights could be made to do a quick turnaround to KTM.
