KATHMANDU, Oct 04: Yeti Airlines, a private airlines company, has introduced its new ATR 72-500 aircraft flights  for the Kathmandu-Pokhara-Kathmandu sector .

The new aircraft will fly twice daily in the sector carrying 60 passengers starting from Wednesday. Flights have been scheduled at 7:30 and 9 in the morning. "Major tourist season has started and aircrafts with extra seats were needed to ease flights for passengers, However, being a bigger aircraft with 72 seats, it will be difficult to operate ATR 72-500 in full capacity due to the runway structure of Pokhara Airport " said Bhim Raj Rai, media manager of Yeti. "It is also good to fly bigger aircraft from the business point of view."

.With the new aircraft, Yeti Airlines now has three ATR 72-500 and six Jetstream 41 aircrafts for domestic flights
