Within past six months, I flew in this airlines around 10 times, mostly in Kathmandu-Nepalgunj route. Most of the aircrafts are small, so there is not need to wait in a long queue while boarding into it. The long flights, such as Kathmandu-Dhangadi route is really boring because passenger has nothing to do in aircraft. A cup of coffee or...

Nevertheless, it is the safest airline to take (also recommended by a tourist who have been continuously visiting the place for 11 yrs). The airport iin Kathmandu and Pokhara is...

Although it was the rainy season, the day I chose, Monday, 27 August was sunny in the morning. Boarded the flight at around 06:15 a.m. and was back in Kathmandu by...

We went to Pokhara, Nepal last month thru the Sunauli border near Gorakhpur. We traveled from Lucknow by an overnight train to Gorakhpur and reached Gorakhpur early morning. There are cabs available at the station that can take you to the Nepal border at Sunauli. It takes around 1.5 hours and costs around Rs. 1500-2000 by a private cab. You...

The flight was about 40 minutes late but unsure whether that was Buddha Airs fault. I had enquirers which flight was the Beech...

Mount Everest... Nature was kind to give us a clear view at this height. Loved the Exprience... the crew was...
