Within a very short span of time, Air Asia has been able to lure a large number of inbound and outbound passengers of Nepal. Recipient of the World’s Best Budget Airline in three consecutive years, Air Asia has proved that it is also the best budget airline flying to and from Kathmandu. Last month, Air Asia celebrated its one hundred days of flight to Nepal.
Celebrating its hundred days, the airlines provided one way ticket to Kathmandu-Kualalumpur for just a 100 dollar bill. According to Air Asia's Kathmandu based GSA, Incentive Tours and Travels, Air Asia has three flights a week from Kulalumpur and it added additional flights during the Dashian festival.
Prime minister Baburam Bhattarai congratulated Air Asia for completing one hundred maiden flights to Nepal. The Prime Minister thanked Air Asia for providing cheaper tickets to Nepalese foreign workers abroad. Although the airline applied four years ago to start its flights to Kathmandu, Air Asia was permitted to fly to Kathmandu during the tenure of prime minister Bhattarai.
Air Asia's Station Manager Kenith Chan, country manager Sarjit Singh and executive chairman of Incentive Travels and Tours Hariman Lama and director Manju Lama were also present on the occasion. During the meeting, a domy plane of Air Asia was handed over to prime minister Bhattarai along with a token of love by director of Air Asia Moses.
