Chi­nese air­craft in op­er­a­tion

People's Review - - NEWS - By Our Re­porter

It is in­ter­est­ing to note that the new man­age­ment in the Nepal Air­lines has made pos­si­ble com­mer­cial flights by the dumped brand new Chi­nese air­craft. The pre­vi­ous man­age­ment un­der the com­mand of con­tro­ver­sial per­son Su­ga­tratna Kangsakar had pub­licly de­clared that it was im­pos­si­ble to op­er­ate com­mer­cial ser­vice by Nepal Air­lines which it owned through the China made air­craft. Kangsakar, by dump­ing the China made air­craft, was plan­ning to pur­chase some twin-ot­ter air­craft to op­er­ate in the small and hilly air­ports in the moun­tain ar­eas. Kan­shakar is learnt to have de­vel­oped such a plan to en­joy a hefty amount of com­mis­sion while pur­chas­ing the new air­craft. Last week, the 17-seater Y-12 air­craft op­er­ated three com­mer­cial flights to Lukla, a very sen­si­tive and dif­fi­cult high-al­ti­tude air­port af­ter suc­cess­ful test flights sev­eral days ear­lier. Ear­lier, the pre­vi­ous man­age­ment had claimed that the China made Y-12 air­crafts were un­able to fly to and from the small air­ports in the hill ar­eas, which has been proved false. The new man­age­ment un­der the com­mand of Madan Kharel has de­cided to op­er­ate all six Chi­nese air­craft owned by NAC – two 56-seater MA 60 and four 17-seater Y-12 for flights within the coun­try. Kharel has been ap­pointed ex­ec­u­tive chair­man of the na­tional flag ca­reer since Kangsakar was found in­volved in cor­rup­tion of above 6 bil­lion ru­pees while pur­chas­ing two wide-body Air­bus air­craft. The CIAA is in­ves­ti­gat­ing on the air­craft pur­chase deal. Kangsakar is an ex­am­ple of how the cor­rupt peo­ple ruin an or­ga­ni­za­tion!
