Nepal Airlines fleet renewal underway with delivery of first A320

Nepal’s national flag carrier, Nepal Airlines Corporation (NAC) has taken delivery of the first Airbus A320 aircraft sporting a new company livery and equipped with Sharklet fuel saving wing tip devices as the airline moves to an all Airbus jet fleet.

With its home base in Kathmandu, the A320 was chosen for NAC’s single aisle fleet for its economics, 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.

“Aviation is our window to the world and the world’s window to explorers, trekkers, cultural and ecological visitors to our ‘Naturally’ beautiful Nepal,” said Madan Kharel, Managing Director, Nepal Airlines Corporation. “Our new A320 with Sharklets will help us to expand air services in the region, to increase capacity and to capitalise in the growth of high value tourism by offering our visitors world class comfort and service levels.”

Nepal Airlines’ A320 will seat 8 business and 150 economy class passengers.

Nepal Airlines currently flies to four international destinations and 25 spectacular domestic locations in the heart of the Himalayas.
