Nepal Airlines Receives First Airbus A320
Nepal Airlines has taken delivery of its first Airbus A320 aircraft.
With its home base in Kathmandu, the A320 was chosen for Nepal Airlines’ single aisle fleet for its performance and capability demanded by high altitude airports. The aircraft has Required Navigation Performance (RNP) capability built-in, which enables the aircraft to fly precisely along predefined routes using state-of-the-art on-board navigation systems.
“For a landlocked nation like Nepal, aviation is a lifeline to the rest of the world. Few examples can better illustrate the importance of aviation as a force for economic development,” said John Leahy, Chief Operating Officer Customers.
Nepal Airlines’ A320 will seat 8 business and 150 economy class passengers. Nepal Airlines currently flies to four international destinations and 25 domestic locations in the heart of the Himalayas.
