Kathmandu. Due to Corona, the tourism sector has been sluggish for a long time. International and domestic flights also opened after a long time. Two private sector airlines, which had brought offers for mountain flights saying that bookings would come or not, have got unexpected results. They have come to book happily.
The companies that have planned only one flight will have five flights on the same day on Saturday. Buddha and Yati Air employees are amazed by the busy booking of those who have not been able to fulfill their dream of hiking and have not been able to fulfill their desire to see the mountains even if they want to go for a walk. With more bookings coming in, both airlines are starting to fly more than the pre-scheduled ones.
Eight months later, the two have unveiled attractive offers on tickets for the Mountain Flight. As soon as the offer is made public, those who want to see the mountains from the ship have booked in full.
After booking on Saturday, passengers now have to wait until next week to get their turn. On Saturday, Buddha made three flights and Yeti made two flights. According to the booking, passengers were crowded on all the five flights. Both the airlines have increased the number of flights as the demand for passengers has increased.
Buddha Air used 70-seat ATR-72 aircraft in all three flights on Saturday. We were planning to have only one mountain flight. Due to the high demand, there will be three ships carrying passengers, said company spokesperson Rupesh Joshi. One ship has been booked for next Saturday.
He said there was an encouraging demand for the long-awaited mountain flight. We did not expect such a good result when planning, he said, there are many people who want to travel. Yeti, who plans to fly to the mountains by the same ship, also said that the number of flights has increased as demand has increased. As soon as the plan was made public, bookings were made.
Demand for Nepali and foreign passengers living in Nepal has increased, said Sudarshan Bartaula, chief of Yati’s flight safety and spokesman.
One ship is already full for next Saturday, he said, adding that we are flying the mountain via ATR-72. Both the companies have stated that the mountain flight will start from 7 am on Saturday. In five to 10 minutes, five ships of the two companies will start flying with passengers for the first time in eight months.
