Today Nepal Airlines is reporting on their new business strategy to be prepared for submission to the Government of Nepal in two to three weeks. This strategy includes the introduction of the Chinese built Harbin Y-12 (often referred to as the Chinese Twin Otter) ordered some time ago. Older versions of the Y-12 were operated in Nepal in the early 1990's, and were phased out in about six years time.
The company's statement indicates that currently, Nepal Airlines Twin Otter situation sits with 1 operational aircraft, 2 out of service, and 1 on lease to another operator. Can any of the readers in Nepal confirm which aircraft are the out of service, and airworthy examples?
