Royal Nepal Airlines
Nepal Airlines was established on 1st July 1958, following the enactment of Nepal Airlines Corporation Act. 2019. The aim of the act was to provide air transport within and outside Nepal, to any individual, organisation or agency. The aviation history of Nepal goes back to early 1950s when Indian aircrafts used Gaucharan in Kathmandu to land. Back then, pilots were required to buzz the aeroplane a couple of times to scare away cows, grazing on the land for safe landing. Presently, the airline is functioning well and is delighting passengers across many important Asian cities. However, Indian airlines included Nepal in their schedule for business purpose and connected several Indian cities to Nepal. The aviation industry in Nepal made significant progress after the establishment of Nepal Airlines that served as the national flag carrier of the country. There was a significant expansion in the route network of Nepal aviation, both internationally and domestically and the airline garnered a huge base of satisfied passengers owing to its cheap air tickets. Nepal Airlines with its low air fare and online booking facility has become the pride of the nation. Nepal Airlines flights connect the country to a host of international and domestic destinations.
