Yeti Airlines has added a third ATR72-500 aircraft to its fleet. The aircraft with registration 9N-ALN arrived on Tuesday, flying from France via Muscat to Kathmandu.

According to the press statement issued by Yeti Airlines, the aircraft has been purchased from KF Turbo Leasing Limited and will be one of the youngest ATR 72 aircraft operating in Nepal.

With the addition of this aircraft, the carrier will expand its ATR operations to Bhadrapur and Pokhara. The ATR 72 is a twin-engine turboprop aircraft manufactured by the French-Italian consortium ATR. With its superior build and performance, the aircraft has become one of the most successful regional carriers in the world, steadily expanding and entering new global markets, the airline said. The ATR 72-500 is powered by two Pratt and Whitney PW127 engines and are equipped with Hamilton Sundstrand composite blade propellers. These high-tech engines and propellers ensure exceptional performance, fuel efficiency, remarkably low noise and low greenhouse gas emissions.

Yeti Airlines commenced its operations from 1998. It now operates three ATR 72-500 and six Jetstream 41 aircraft.
