Yeti Airlines started its first commercial flight in September 1998 with a single Canadian built DHC6-300 Twin Otter aircraft. Within a decade it became the largest domestic airline operator with a fleet of BAE Systems Jetstream-41, DHC6-300 Twin Otter and the German built Dornier Do 228 aircraft. Within the last 18 years, we have strengthened and grown to become Nepal’s premier Airline.
In 2009, its sister airline Tara Air was established to take over the Short Take Off and Landing (STOL) operations with the DHC6-300 and Dornier DO228 aircraft fleet. Yeti Airlines has retained its modern fleet of seven Jetstream 41 twin turbo prop aircraft that operate on non-STOL domestic sectors of Nepal. The two airlines together continue to provide the largest network of flight routes throughout Nepal.
As among the aviation industry leader we have a special social commitment which we take very seriously. Therefore we are engaged and active in supporting various social projects within the country. We take great pride in this charity as we like to work together for the benefits of the society. This belief is at the core of the Airlines mission and is therefore part of our regular practices as well as our programs and initiatives in our offices. The credit also goes to all our passengers without whom our noble cause of helping society would not have been possible. As part of our Social responsibility, Yeti Airlines donates Nrs. 4 per flight ticket to the Social Organizations, involved in various social activities.
