Nepal Airline Corporation to own Chinese aircrafts boosting domestic aviation market

Published on : Tuesday, January 17, 2017

Nepal AirlinesNepal Airline Corporation (NAC), the national flag carrier of Nepal, will soon boast of Chinese aircrafts. A four-member team has departed for China to bring two of the four Chinese-made aircraft on order.

 

The arrival of the new aircraft from China is expected to boost NAC’s presence in domestic aviation market which had shrunk in recent years due to its depleting number of fleet.

 

NAC Managing Director Sugat Ratna Kansakar told Xinhua that the team led by its director Poshak Gnawali departed for China to take delivery of the two planes.

 

“The planes will arrive soon,” he said, adding other two planes on order would also be brought in the next three to four months.

 

As per an agreement signed between Nepal’s flag carrier and Chinese supplier – AVIC International Holding – in December 2012, Nepal would acquire six Chinese aircraft, two in grants and four on loans.

 

Of them, the NAC has already acquired one 56-seater MA60 and one 17-seater Y12e from the Chinese government, but it is yet to take delivery of three Y12e and one MA60 under the loan agreement.
