Pokhara Ultralight resumes flight

Pokhara. The ultralight (butterfly ship), which has been closed since April due to the second variant of Covid-19, will be brought into operation from August 3 by adopting special health standards.

Pom Narayan Shrestha,  the Managing Director of Ultralight Company of Pokhara, informed that the Ultralight flight is being re-operated in a systematic manner to revive the tourism that was halted due to Covid-19.

He said that the flight will be carried out in full compliance with the health standards set by the Civil Aviation Authority. He also added that flights would be provided for the promotion of domestic tourism at a time when tourism activities were slowing down. “We will enjoy the ultralight flight at 6,500,” said Shrestha.

Pokhara, which has a view of the mountain ranges including Machhapuchhre and Annapurna, is equally important in terms of lakes and religion. Avia Club introduced Ultralight in Pokhara in 1996. Ultralight, also known as butterfly ship, operates only in Pokhara.

Currently, four companies including Avia Club, Fishtail, Pokhara, Heliair Nepal have taken permission to operate Ultralight flights. At present, only Pokhara Ultralight has started flying which is operated in Pokhara under the Civil Aviation Authority.
