Shree Airlines gets permission to operate int’l chartered flights

Kathmandu: The civil aviation regulator has allowed Shree Airlines to operate international chartered flights of up to three hours, enabling the private airline company to fly to destinations such as India and Bangladesh.
The Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) this week allowed Shree Airlines to use three of its four aircraft — two 50-seater CRJ-200s and a 70-seater CRJ-700 — to conduct short-haul international chartered flights.

“This permission will enable the airline to operate chartered flights to neighbouring India and Bangladesh,” said CAAN Deputy Director General Rajan Pokharel. “The CAAN is also considering on allowing the airline company to operate international scheduled flights.”

Shree Airlines has already submitted documents to the CAAN seeking permission to operate international scheduled flights. “We are going through those documents and will issue a license soon,” said Pokharel. The airline company has sought a ‘Class C’ licence, which allows it to operate international flights of up to three hours.
