Flying in Nepal is being more popular as compared to the driving as it saves time and more comfortable. Nepal’s domestic airlines network includes some of the most remote and spectacular airstrips in the world. The approaches to these airstrips are difficult. Many are on mountain sides surrounded by high peaks. Therefore, if there are clouds or high winds, the pilot cannot land. The classic remark by one captain explains the picture perfectly: We don’t fly through clouds because in Nepal the clouds have rocks in them’.
Many new domestic airlines have taken to the skies since the privatization for the airline industry in 1991 (and several have even gone defunct). All are based in Kathmandu, and most operate with small STOL (Short Take Off & Landing) aircraft like Twin Otters. Below is a short profile of each airline.
Yeti Airways was established in 1998 and operates with a fleet of four 19-seater DHC-6-300 Twin Otter aircraft. Their route net covers mountain flight (Everest Flight), Lukla, Pokhara, Simikot, Phaplu, Simara, Lamidanda, Rumjatar, Simara, Bharatpur, Bhadrapur, Bhairawa, Biratnagar, Nepalgunj, and Jomsom.
