Many new domestic airlines have taken to the skies since
the privatization for the airline industry in 1991 (and
several have even gone defunct). All are based in Kathmandu,
and most operate with small STOL (Short Take Off &
Landing) aircraft like Twin Otters. Below is a short
profile of each airline.

a fleet of four 19-seater DHC-6-300 Twin Otter aircraft.
Their route net covers Lukla, Pokhara, Simikot, Phaplu,
Lamidanda, Rumjatar, Simara, and Jomsom.

fleet – four Raytheon Beech 1900D 19-seater aircraft.

established in 1997, has quickly grown to be popular.

despite having been established over three decades ago.
The government-owned airline, however, has the most
extensive network of domestic routes, serving virtually
every remote district in the country. Royal Nepal operates
its domestic network with a fleet of 19-seat Twin Otters
and 44-seat Avro (HS-748) aircraft.
