Airbus in Service Contract with Nepalese Airline
Fishtail Air Pvt. Ltd operates charter flights in Nepal and occasional flights in Bhutan and India, including sightseeing, rescue, medical evacuation, corporate transport, and support flights for heli-trekking to popular tourist destinations.
Airbus announced that Fishtail Air signed a contract with Airbus Helicopters in June to cover a fleet of two H125 helicopters for five years under the manufacturer's HCare service offer. The contract stipulates support for both and unscheduled aircraft events.
Established in 1997, Fishtail Air Pvt. Ltd operates charter flights in Nepal and occasional flights in Bhutan and India; from its base in Kathmandu, the company operates sightseeing, rescue, medical evacuation, corporate transport, and support flights for heli-trekking to the region's most popular tourist destinations, according to Airbus.
"After being the first company to introduce the H125 in Nepal, we will now be the first to benefit from the HCare Smart program in the country," said Suman Pandey, CEO of Fishtail Air. "We can now focus on operations to answer the growing demand for helicopter services in Nepal while also ensuring high maintenance standards together with Airbus."
HCare service coverage extends to material management; helicopter maintenance, repair and overhaul and upgrades; technical support; training and flight operations; and connected services.
