In a bid to attract more passengers, Nepal’s state-owned airlines company, Nepal Airlines Corporation (NAC) has announced a new attractive offer of ‘buy two get one free’ on Kuala Lumpur-Kathmandu sector.
NAC is giving one ticket free of cost on purchase of two tickets to passengers flying on the Kuala Lumpur sector, said NAC spokesperson, Hari Sharma in a statement yesterday (July 20).
The offer came following the decline of passenger flow after the April 25 earthquake, particularly following the standoff between the Nepal government and the manpower agencies over the fees for sending Nepalese migrant workers to different countries, including Malaysia.
NAC’s new offer is valid for the round-trip tickets for a limited period.
“We have announced the offer targeting both national and international passengers traveling to Malaysia and other destinations via Kuala Lumpur,” said Sharma.
At present almost 75 per cent of passengers on the Kathmandu-Kuala Lumpur sector constitute Nepalese migrant workers.
As the number of migrant workers has declined recently, airlines have drastically reduced their flights on the Kathmandu sector.
Nepal government has recently announced its decision to send migrant workers to Malaysia and some Gulf countries only on condition that they are provided free visa and free tickets by the employers.
The recruitment agencies have opposed this decision and halted the process of sending Nepalese migrant workers abroad for the last one week.
Malaysia is the most popular destination for Nepalese migrant workers.
