Yeti Airlines is proud to announce the addition of a fifth ATR 72-500 aircraft with Manufactured Serial Number (MSN) 740 to its fleet. The aircraft with Nepalese registration number 9N-ANG arrived at TIA Kathmandu on July 27, approximately at 1:30 pm after its ferry flight from Bangkok, Thailand. With the acquisition of our fifth ATR72-500 aircraft, Yeti Airlines will increase our flight frequencies to certain destinations and also add some new ones. They hope this will help Nepal achieve the target of 2 million tourist arrivals for the ‘Visit Nepal 2020’ year.
The ATR 72-500 is a twin-engine turboprop aircraft manufactured by the French-Italian consortium ATR. With its superior build and performance, the ATR72 has now become the most successful regional carrier in the world, steadily expanding and entering into new global markets.
The ATR 72-500 is powered by two Pratt & 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.
