The new aircraft, ´Sagarmatha´, of the Nepal Airlines Corporation (NAC), has started its first commercial flight to New Delhi, India. The flight was cancelled the first day as it failed to secure the permit for flying in the Indian sky.

The aircraft operated its maiden flight to New Delhi at 8:30 am from the Tribhuvan International Airport carrying 101 passengers. Spokesperson at NAC, Ramhari Sharma, said that the aircraft would return to Kathmandu carrying 50 passengers at 12:15 pm.

According to the NAC, the aircraft now would operate flights on four days a week -- Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. The NAC had brought the Airbus ´A 320-200´ on February 8.

The NAC has fixed Rs 7,100 as a one way fare to New Delhi for Nepalese and Rs 8,000 for foreign nationals.
