THAI Airways International has on Thursday said that it is looking into possibilities to operate beyond Kathmandu to connect popular destinations like Lhasa and Middle-East.
THAI officials made this remark while speaking at a program held in the capital to mark the 41st anniversary of the airline's operation in Nepal.
"Many other international airlines have joined the sky race after Nepal adopted liberal air service policy. As such, we are seriously considering the demand prospects of Nepali civil aviation, "they said.
The airways has also promised to support the "Nepal Tourism Year 2011" campaign by introducing attractive packages and offers.
THAI was the first commercial airline to operate with jet set services with SE210 Caravelle aircraft between Bangkok and Kathmandu. In 1968, THAI started once a week flight between Bangkok and Kathmandu and soon after 1 more flight was added and then 5 flights a week to cope with the growing demand of passengers.
The airlines currently operates 9 flights a week and planning to resume 1 more additional flight with the modern Boeing 777-200 with configuration of 30 Business Class and 279 Economy Class to connect Nepal to the world. nepalnews.com
