BKI? Really? I guess it would be from Incheon. What's the frequency? Using what frame?

Presently MH serves the route twice a week using a 330.

UTP has been a long serving charter route for KE using a mix of A300 and more recently B737-800 aircraft. I presume that's changing from a charter flight to a scheduled charter flight (where passengers can actually buy tickets).

The route to BKI looks set to be served by an A330.

Kathmandu was operated as a charter service by B777-200. Perhaps this will continue.

Looks like all these are charter services as Amadeus.net are not showing them with summer schedule, BKI will be 738 initailly and A300 later on, UTP will be 738 and later A300 and A333.

they operated charters in 2005 and doing the same in 2006...
