Yeti Airlines and Tara Air attain IATA approved global safety standard

Yeti Airlines and Tara Air attain IATA approved global safety standard

Two of Nepal’s main domestic airlines - Yeti Airlines and their subsidiary Tara Air - have recently fulfilled IATA’s Safety Standard Assessment (ISSA) programme requirements and are now IATA approved ISSA Operators. This makes them the first and only Nepali airlines to attain the new global safety standard for commercial airlines.

On gaining the standard, Yeti Airlines proudly stated “This achievement is a result of many years of rigorous work on improving our airline safety management systems and reflects our continued focus on safety. Now you can choose to fly an airline in Nepal that meets a global IATA safety standard. Namaste and welcome aboard."

Mountain Kingdoms always use a reputable IATA airline for domestic flights.
