Etihad Airways is to increase its Abu Dhabi-Kathmandu services from four to seven flights per week from January 2010.

 Etihadís flights to Kathmandu, which were launched in December 2008, have proved extremely popular with travellers, providing high volumes of traffic into Abu Dhabi and the Middle East, as well as transit traffic to destinations including London and Frankfurt in Western Europe, and New York and Chicago in North America.

The success of the route is evident in average load factors of between 80 and 90% on both in and outbound flights. This is attributable to growth in corporate travel and also a positive trend in inbound tourism to Nepal, and the additional flights were introduced to satisfy these customersí demands for daily frequencies, specifically.

New Country Manager

Etihad Airways has appointed Ken Marshall as its country manager in Nepal. Based in Kathmandu, Mr Marshall will take over from outgoing manager, Kumar de Silva, to oversee the airlineís operations in Nepal.
