Kathmandu, May 3

The national flag carrier, Nepal Airlines Corporation (NAC), says it will install wifi routers on its widebody aircraft that carry international flights.

The development follows the Nepal Telecommunications Authority introducing a policy of giving internet facilities in the Nepali sky also.

The corporation says it has formed a nine-member team led by the director of its Engineering Maintenance Department to prepare the installation.

The corporation hopes the facility will also attract more passengers to board its flights.

Several international airline companies flying to Nepal have already installed devices to provide wifi facilities. However, before the NTA’s approval, the service was not available in the Nepali sky.

The NAC operates four aeroplanes for international flights. But, for now, only two–the widebody ones–will have wifi.
