Nepal Airlines is the flag carrier airline of Nepal. Its head office is in the NAC Building in Kathmandu, and its main base is Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu.
The airline was established in July 1958 as Royal Nepal Airlines Corporation. In 2004 it was reported that the Government of Nepal had decided to sell off 49% of its stake in Nepal Airlines, to the private sector, and hand over management control; whilst retaining a 51% share. This would provide the investment to get the airline out of significant debt. In September 2007 the airline confirmed that it had sacrificed two goats to appease a Hindu godâ€”following technical problems with one of its aircraft. In 2009, at the Dubai Airshow, Nepal Airlines signed a Memorandum of understanding with Airbus to acquire one A330-200 and one A320-200. The A330 will be used on flights to Japan and Europe, and the A320 will operate flights to the Middle East and Southeast Asia.
Presently, the airline flies to 39 destinationsâ€”seven of which are international. Nepal Airlines offers international scheduled flights to the following destinations: Netherlands, India, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Qatar, UAE, Germany, Hong Kong, Pakistan, Malaysia, UK, Japan, France, China, Singapore and Austria.
