Kathmandu: Nepal’s leading air service company Buddha Air has built a new passenger boarding ramp to pay heed to the demands of sick and differently abled passengers.
International air companies are using the facilities of ramps, while Nepali air companies so far are not using such technology.
The new ramp technology was built with locally available resources as import from abroad would be quite expensive. The ramp will be used in the domestic flights at first, for a one month trial, according to Marketing Director Rupesh Joshi, in a press statement issued Sunday.
Buddha Air has 22 years of air service since 1997. It has 7 ATR with 72 seats, 3 ATR with 42 seats and 2 Beechcraft with 19 seats. All 12 aircraft operate domestic and international flights.
Buddha has been taking flights to two Indian towns- Kolkatta and Varanasi – and is preparing to make flights to Guwahati in the future.
