Nepal’s domestic aviation takes off

As Nepal’s tourism industry bounces back, the sector that has benefited the most is domestic aviation.
There aren’t enough planes, or enough hours in the day, to take tourists on an aerial sight-seeing trip to Chomolungma.

On 31 August this year, airlines set a record with 31 mountain flights by Buddha Air and 12 by Yeti Airlines. Right through the autumn season, the two airlines reaped a windfall of tourism traffic.
