BAE Systems Regional Aircraft has signed a MACRO contract extension with Yeti Airlines of Nepal to support the carrier’s fleet of seven Jetstream 41s.
Yeti Airlines first enrolled on to the MACRO programme in 2006 and this first extension by the airline, recently signed, will see the programme continue for a further two years until mid-2015. The contract covers 220 aircraft parts.
Yeti Airlines first started operating the Jetstream 41 in 2006 and today with this aircraft and other types in its fleet it serves nine scheduled destinations across Nepal from the capital Kathmandu, as well as offering regular Mount Everest scenic observation flights using the J41.
