Sita Air, the vital Airlink

Aviation in Nepal has a brave and pioneering heritage, and Sita Air is proud to maintain a pioneering spirit that has set the pattern for the airline’s reputation. From modest beginnings of Sita Air has developed into domestic airline with a comprehensive network of scheduled services, and most reliable airlines in Nepal. It is the continued support and enthusiasm of the people we serve which has given us the strength to expand, and which is the foundation of our success.

The early years

Sita Air began operation in 2003 with single aircraft.

Almost immediately, it was apparent that there was a demand for scheduled services & cargo flights and as such Sita Air’s fleet grew. As the network expanded to take in more remote Airports and communities, Sita Air’s scheduled network began to emerge.

In 2004 Sita Air started flight to various sectors such as Janakpur, Simra, Biratnagar, Bharatpur, Bhairawa & Nepalgunj, but gradually we focused more on Western area region of Nepal due to huge demand of STOL aircraft in that region & passenger flow.

Coast to coast and beyond

Apart from Lukla, The Shurkhet has become the focus of expansion, as the stage now set for the next major step forward – a hub of business routes is from Shurkhet/Nepalgunj out of core business platform.
We are also planning to add few brand new single engine aircraft to support the flight operating from Nepalgunj & Surkhet for charter & cargo flights.

Getting down to business

Firmly established as Nepal’s Airline, new horizons were sought, and in 2005 Sita Air took over Surkhet – Bajura, Surkhet-Jumla, Surkhet- Simikot route for food grain cargo of Nepal Food corp. and World food program under United Nation.

The new routes are added since 2007 is Pokhara-Kathmandu and Pokhara – Jomsom, Served all most through out the year.

With business traffic representing an ever-increasing proportion of Sita Air’s annual passenger carryings & Cargo flights, Sita Air acquired further aircraft very recently and is in operation now, We are riding a wave of success and optimism so time has come for Sita Air to enter into the Cross border & international market.

From these small beginnings, and under the control of Sita Air's loyal management and dedicated staffs, the company has seen the fleet grow with the introduction of the 5th aircraft and from a steady and watchful eye on new opportunities.

We are in the process of obtaining the license from Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal for international operations/ cross boarder operations and we would like to welcome foreign Investment in this journey to international market segment. Further information on this part can be obtained at below:
