Kathmandu, October 22
Yeti Airlines has received the international flight permit to become the fifth airline service provider allowed to fly abroad.
The country’s aviation regulator, the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal, recently issued an air operator certificate (AOC) to the company, allowing it to conduct non-scheduled and chartered flights internationally.
Yeti Airlines spokesperson Sudarshan Bartaula says his company plans to carry flights to various South Asian and Southeast Asian destinations after getting the permit.
Before this, Nepal Airlines, Himalaya Airlines, Buddha Air and Shree Airlines had received approval for international flights. However, only Nepal Airlines and Himalaya Airlines have been conducting regular flights.
