Kathmandu, December 19
Passengers have been attracted to the country's mountain flights after getting a panoramic view of the mountains, including the highest peak, Mount Everest.
The airlines have stated that the mountain flight, which has been in operation since last December 20, is being encouraged amid the Covid-19 transition.
The attraction of domestic tourists has increased in the mountain flight, which was opened almost nine months after the closure.
Private airlines Buddha and Yeti Airlines have been flying in the mountains every Saturday. There have been eight mountain flights on the same day on Saturday-flights of Buddha Air and three flights of Yeti Air.
The company has stated that the flight from Simara to Yeti was canceled due to bad weather.
The mountain flight will depart from Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu at 7:00 am. Due to the cancellation of flights of both the companies last Saturday, many flights have been operated on the same day.
Today, Buddha Air has stated that 300 passengers have visited Everest through five flights. Buddha Air plans to operate in the mountains on other days as the demand for passengers has increased.
Yeti Airlines will operate mountain flights two days a week, keeping in mind the demand of passengers.
Yeti, which is currently flying in the mountains only on Saturdays, will also fly every Sunday. The company has stated that two flights have been scheduled for tomorrow, Sunday.
Chief of Flight Safety and Spokesperson of Yeti Airlines Sudarshan Bartaula informed that flights will be operated every Saturday and Sunday as per the demand of the passengers. According to him, Yeti will fly from Kathmandu two days a week and one day every Saturday from Simara base.
