Nepal Airlines Corporation (NAC) today invited letter of intent (LoI) from interested foreign firms for management consultancy service. The move is targeted at improving overall performance of NAC through need assessment and gap analysis.
The consultant to be hired will get a time of two years, with the possibility of extension if required, to help transform NAC. As per the condition of NAC, the consultant will be required to perform and identify initial need assessment or gap analysis to discern where it needs to focus on for improvements. The gap analysis should not exclude the airline’s commercial, engineering, operations and finance departments.
Under the management consultancy, NAC plans to hire four to five experts to work for it. Similarly, the consultant will have to conduct the training and assist NAC to enhance its job performance and ensure the implementation of overall improvement against the best practices in the aviation industry, among others.
NAC currently operates flights in five international sectors — New Delhi (India), Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Doha (Qatar), Hong Kong and Bangkok (Thailand) — with two Boeing 757s and two Airbus A320s. It is all set to resume service to Bangalore and Mumbai of India soon. Moreover, NAC is also planning to start flying to new destinations — Guangzhou (China) and Dubai — within November this year, according to NAC.
Foreign firms have been given 30 days to submit LoI.
