Yeti brings sixth Jetstream 41

Kathmandu, May 21:

Yeti Airlines Domestic Pvt Ltd’s sixth 30-seat Jetstream 41 landed here at Tribhuwan International Airport (TIA) at 11:10 am today. It is registered as 9N AIH.

“The British Aerospace manufactured aircraft is acquired on an outright purchase basis,” states a press release. Yeti Airlines is a privately owned carrier that started its operations in September 1998. It currently operates a fleet of five 19-seats DHC6-300 Twin Otters and five 30-seats Jet-stream 41s.

The Airlines claims to have provided the most extensive domestic network in Nepal to various remote areas like Bajhang, Simikot, Manang, Rukum, Dolpo, Bajura, Rara, Phaplu, Rumjhatar,

Lukla - the gate way to Mt Everest.

The newly-acquired Jetstream 41 is expected to be an additional advantage for flight reliability

and flight frequency. The passengers of the Mt Everest sight-seeing and mountain flights and regional flights to trunk sector business destinations such as Pokhara, Biratnagar, Bhadrapur, Bhairahawa and Nepalgunj will get more benefit from this addition, according to the company.
