Flights to Nepal possible via Malaysia in 2018:


Quote:
As far as the ASA with Australia is concerned, both parties have agreed to allow seven weekly flights with any type of aircraft, he said. The Australian government has expressed willingness to permit seven weekly flights to key cities like Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth.

It has also proposed providing unlimited flights to other destinations. Third country code-share agreement, fifth freedom traffic rights, multiple designations, free pricing and unrestricted cargo are other items proposed by Nepal in the air accord.

The government had made a request to the Australian government to sign an air service pact as Nepal Airlines wished to link Australia after acquiring two long-range Airbus A330-200s which are expected to be delivered by the first quarter of 2018.

According to a Nepal Air Traffic Analysis report prepared by Airbus in 2015, Australia is an emerging market. There were 41,000 one-way travellers between Australia and Nepal in 2014. The preferred route between Nepal and Australia is through Malaysia.

I really can't picture Brisbane and Melbourne getting flights, it would be good for Brisbane as MH are not on the horizon just yet, but will be, KL is important and Malindo yuk stuck in a 737 for 12 hours, although they have proposed an A330. But MH are keen on BNE.

I just think Nepal is best served by Sydney only flights, but then again where they can make money. Don't forget Sri Lankan isn't coming to Sydney.

With these ... non mainstream destinations I think it is mostly about where expats from those places reside in Australia - like how BNE gets a lot of flights from Taiwan - and where the airline can get favourable slots / terms.

They choose a hub and I suppose hope people from other cities will connect there. I wonder how successful that is?

Out of curiosity I'd love to know the origin breakdown of other one-city airlines departing Australia. Say Royal Brunei, Cebu Pacific and Sri Lankan. The first two offer cheap fares, but add on a domestic connection and I doubt many from outside VIC / TAS bother with BI - there are plenty other options unless you happen to actually be going to Brunei or Borneo. 5J out of SYD probably does OK with interstate connection O&D traffic, there are Filipinos everywhere. And who knows how UL will go - Sri Lankans in cities other than MEL have other fully-international one-stop options on very good airlines. I suppose UL could do well with VIC-based mainland Indians if the price is right.

So, where do all the Nepalese reside in Australia? Cannot say I've heard of a community of them in Sydney. Doesn't mean there isn't one.

Maybe OOL is an option, for the Northern NSW hippies?

Ah, here you go:
Quote:
Geographic Distribution
The latest Census in 2011 recorded 24 636 Nepal-born people in Australia, an increase of 439.6 per cent from the 2006 Census. The 2011 distribution by state and territory showed New South Wales had the largest number with 15 297 followed by Victoria (4310), Queensland (2138) and South Australia (1038).

UL is mainly targeting VFR, O&D and Indian/Maldives connecting traffic. They have started to optimise connections for the Indian flights to meet with the MEL flights. Will depend how cheap it is I guess, the Sri Lankan market is very price sensitive, however if it is only a little more they will go direct with UL, many migrants prefer to fly with their home carrier - this includes domestic connections like SYD based pax connecting in MEL, mainly these flights would be offered by travel agents, who many Sri Lankans are still heavily reliant on.

I guess with UL being in OW, they could be an attractive option to fly to India.

Though if Nepal Airlines is planning a stop in Malaysia, I don't think the flights will be very attractive at all for connecting domestic pax.

^ Thanks for that soorox. I tend to forget people still use travel agents, and can be oblivious to their routing. But I didn't bat an eye back when our corporate agency routed me thru MEL when MH were still doing a triangular route - and flying 747 down here.

Yeah, that was a while ago.

I am only familiar with one "ethnic" community. And yes, they by and large use agents and stick to their home carrier - for the food, language and culture, and national pride. Only the longer term expats shop around.

Haha, there's a bunch of foreign Av geeks somewhere right now saying the same thing about Aussies and QF.

Is Nepal Air planning on a one-stop via KL? I didn't read much more than the headline - assumed that 'preference' referred to the current situation. I don't think anyone would 'prefer' to go via KL on an obscure little airline, they would surely go with a known brand in that case. Unless OLA is quite a bit cheaper.

Except for those expats, and travel-agent customers.
