“For a landlocked nation, aviation really is our window to the world and the world’s window to us. Nepal offers explorers, trekkers and pleasure seekers a wide range of cultural, ecological and outdoor pursuits. Adding the A320 to our fleet, will help us to capitalize on tourism growth and to enhance our network using the most fuel efficient aircraft available,” said Madan Kharel, managing director at NAC.
Airbus did not announce a scheduled delivery date for Nepal's new A320s.
