Looks like things are looking up for Nepali airlines!
Yeti Airlines and Tara Air have recently fulfilled IATA’s (International Air Transport Association) Safety Standard Assessment (ISSA). This makes Yeti and Tara the first Nepali airline to attain an IATA approved global safety standard. Speaking about the new certification, ground handling and media manager of the company Bhim Raj Rai shared “This is a historic achievement for Nepali airline companies because we have provided an assurance to our stakeholders and also encouraged other airlines to operate efficiently”.
Tara Air also added a brand new Viking DHC6-400 twin otter aircraft in July last year. The Series 400 boasts cutting edge avionics technology with an integrated full glass cockpit that features the Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS), Traffic Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) and a full colour Weather Radar.
