This October taking a Mumbai-Kathmandu flight will be a costly affair

Mumbai: One-way tickets of Jet Airways between Mumbai-Kathmandu have zoomed to Rs 50,000 in October and above, with only the highest-level economy class fare and business class seats available on the route. On many days economy class seats are not available and only business class seats are being sold.

Jet Airways is the only Indian airline offering four weekly flights on the route and it also connects the Nepal capital via Delhi. The return fare on Mumbai-Kathmandu route works out to be more economical, as lower slab economy class seats are available on return leg.
