Guna Airlines is set to begin its operation with Jetstream 41 aircraft bought from another private carrier, Yeti Airlines. 5 Jetstream 41 aircraft are being readied for Guna Airlines which will operate domestic flights after a long gap in the Nepali aviation industry.
Yeti Airlines is operating British manufactured Jetstream 41 aircraft for more than 14 years and now is replacing them with environment-friendly ATR 72 planes.
The domestic flights have already resumed from 1st July after the government announced a green signal following 3 months of COVID-19 lockdown. Both the airline companies have already reached the agreement for aircraft purchase and the deal will be finalized by handing over the 5 J-41s by this week.
The official from Yeti Airlines informed that they are on the verge of discontinuing their operation with J-41 aircraft so, all the remaining 5 planes are being sold to Guna Airlines. Yeti will also provide technical as well as operational assistance to Guna Airlines during the initial phase of operation.
