Yeti Airlines: Finally Taking Off from Kathmandu to Pokhara


Yeti Airlines is part of the ANA, Take Me ‘Round the World Trip Report.

The flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara is only 25 minutes long. You wouldn’t know it by the level of service. First, passengers are given candy. Then the flight attendant comes around with peanuts. Then the flight attendant comes around with water. Compare this to my United Polaris flight where I received no attention (see United Polaris EWR-BRU: The Horror Show!).

The tiny plane did not make me nervous, though I can understand why the airline canceled the flight the day before (see Nepal Domestic Flight Misery). Taking off and landing during a monsoon is not worth the risk. On the day I traveled, it was still overcast but clear enough to take pictures of Kathmandu, a city that is peaceful from up on high (see Guns & Butter: Kathmandu Travel Guide).


  1. I flew as a Flight Attendant with United Nations in Nepal. Luckily it was with a Canadian airline. Nepalese carriers have one of the worst safety records and are banned by the E.U. Glad you landed safely!
